LAITIERE DE CHERBOURG PLATE

9-1/2" diameter, side slightly flared upwards. Exquisite costume detail, she is encircled by a delicate spray of apple blossoms and branches. A very modest hairline has been corrected by our restorer; she is now in lovely show-off condition. The signature is a bit of an enigma, as there has been discussion in the past (Quimper Club Journal, Winter 2008) that this mark was associated with the Porquier Beau faïencerie. However, the evidence is inconclusive; we prefer to offer this plate as an outstanding piece of artwork of the early 20th century: let it stand on its own lovely merits!

$250, plus shipping.

BLASON PLATE

10" diameter, in beautiful condition. (Only a tiny break in the cuffed back prevents hanging through the piercings; since this plate is extremely heavy, we would specify a very strong plate hanger, or shelf stand anyway.) The embossed inner surround acts as a frame for the blason, making for a dramatic presentation. It is early 20th century, signed with the CA of Alcide Chaumeil and typical of his innovative style. 

$125, plus shipping.

STYLISH SIMPLICITY

9" diameter plate, in lovely condition. One tiny glaze flake at about 9 o'clock, on the outer rim, and some fly-speck impurities under the glaze, original to the firing. The bold floral spray is a handsome match for Quimper patterns, yet has its own distinctive style. Late 19th century, too early for a signature, probably St. Clement. 

$110, plus shipping.

PAUL FOUILLEN SHALLOW CALOTTES

9-1/4"- 9-1/2" diameters, plates of very heavy quality. These have always been considered among the most desirable of all his decors: the rich colors, the strong graphics, the tantalizing drama of the fisherman and his ladies. It is not surprising that they have been featured in all the important literature about this important artist. In perfect original condition from the de la Hubaudière factory, mid 1920s.

$225 each, plus shipping.
