  • Strasbourg Faience Dish Made by Paul Hannong, circa 1755

    $730.00

    This 18th century faience dish was hand painted in the factory of Paul Hannong in Strasbourg, France. The flowers are exquisite. I would almost call them delicious! Paul Hannong, and his brother Joseph, were known for the fabulous flower painting on their faience. French faience of this type was used at the court of Louis XIV as part of elaborate meals and displays. This finely painted plate was decorated with sprays of beautiful flowers in the mid-18th century circa 1755. The border of the dish is molded with six slightly lobed panels. The edge is painted dark brown. The dish’s underside is marked in underglaze blue with Paul Hannong’s “IH” cipher over “90” written in brown (see images). An oval dish decorated with very similar hand painted flowers can be found in Christie’s auction on May 29, 2001, Auction 2507 EUROPEAN CERAMICS, DUTCH DELFTWARE, AND GLASS Lot 165. It is attributed by Christie’s to Paul Hannon.
