    Set of Four Hand-Painted Plates by J. Siguier Commemorating Early French Balloon Flights. 9.5", each signed "J. Siguier". The plates picture: the July 15, 1784 flight of the Duc de Chartres, the Roberts brothers, and Colin; the January 7, 1785 flight across the English Chanel by Jean-Pierre Francois Blanchard and John Jeffries; the balloon flight marking the coronation of Napoleon Bonaparte, December 2, 1804; and, the September 13, 1791 flight marking the acceptance of the French constitution by King Louis XVI. One plate is marked with a gold coronet above an "X" with a dot in each quadrant. The other three plates are just marked with the "X" and dots. All are fine and very attractive.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
