Photos 32, 33 and 34 are from the Raynaud book, this describes the origination of this décor, as in the English translation below:
Palais Royal was originally called « Promenade aux Champs Élysées « . It was presented by the General Manager of
the Galeries Lafayette and Martial Raynaud to Sacha Guitry for the movie « Remontons les Champs Élysées « in 1938.
Since then, many celebrities or crowned heads acquired this set.
The motifs of the cartels evoke the dress and customs of the Incroyables, Merveilleuses and Muscadins, eccentric young Parisians
during the Directoire. They were inspired by an engraving by Louis Caroggis known as Carmontelle (1717–1806) who was also a
playwright and the author of short, light, witty plays called « Proverbes.
All the characters and foliage motifs are entirely enhanced before being hand-painted and highlighted with gold. The traditional Limoges
technique requires as many firings as colours. Each cartel and each scene is different, which gives the décor its unique appeal.
Commercialization of the model from the 1950s.
Needless to say, the service will be packaged with care and shipped by registered post.
