Gold Limoges

Another heirloom passed down from my Great~Grandmother, this 22 karat gold adorned platter was her mother's~in~law. Mom and I are guessing it's from around the 1920's. I like to wonder what savory meals were lovingly presented on this warm, friendly dish.

I tried "Google ing" Limoges Lyceum Yellow and didn't come up with anything! There is some Blue, Green and even Rose, but even Replacements.com didn't list yellow. Don't know if it is more rare or soon fell out of favor with comtomers and was dropped from manufacture. There are also some listed on Ebay, but again, not yellow!
But since it is yellow ~ fits in for your "Yellow Week"! :~}
