George Basset China set in Brewster, New York

George Basset China set
Type: Art & Antiques, For Sale

George Bassett was a New York company with factories in Limoges and in Austria. From the later 1800s until World War I, they imported into the US mostly table china with floral transfer decoration. Their goods have no porcelain mark; they were decorated at the factories which produced them.
Limoges (LEEmozh) is a city in France. It became famous for its very white and fine grain porcelain after the discovery of kaolin at St-Yrieix-la-Perche, 41 km south of Limoges, in 1768.
To protect the long-established reputation of Limoges porcelain and to maintain its high standards, the French government limits use of the name Limoges.
Thus, Limoges is a designation like Champagne:
Any sparkling wine within the official Champagne region is Champagne.
Any porcelain made within the official Limoges area is Limoges
