  • Pair French Faience Dishes Made circa 1780

    $700.00

    We are pleased to offer these two 18th-century French faience light-hearted dishes painted with figures. The first plate, mustard yellow on a white ground, features an amusing stylized bird. The second plate light green on white ground shows the “Walking Man” a favorite theme of 18th-century European faience and Delft. Both plates have scalloped rims and similar floral motifs throughout. While not a true pair, the two dishes work well together as they are identical in size, the colors compliment each other and the style of painting is similar. They are an amusing and eye-catching pair. Our plates share many of the attributes of faience painted in Southwest France between 1730-1840: the natural scenes decorated in a chinoiserie style, the camaieu colors, and the flanking motifs around a central figure. Like our dishes, most of this type of faience was not signed, and the makers have remained anonymous.        References: “French Faience” by Jeanne Giacomotti, page 178.       Dimensions: diameter 9.75 inches               Condition: Excellent.                  Price: $700 for the pair.                             Each plate can be purchased individually for $400 each.
