19th Century French Antique Faience Cornucopia Chargers Plates
A delightful pair of hand-painted French faience chargers with a classical cornucopia design with flowers, birds and insects. Strongly associated with the Thanksgiving holiday, the cornucopia is a symbol of abundance. The stamp tells us that these were produced between 1871 and 1875 in Gien, a commune in north-central France. Among the many faience manufacturers in the 19th century, the reputation of the Gien manufacturers is equal to those of the factories of Creil-Monterau or Bordeaux. The faience manufacturers in Gien fully grasped the art of imitation and produced impressive copies of earlier work. The cornucopia design was taken from earlier 18th century pieces produced in Rouen. These chargers have nominal signs of wear and use. One plate has a very small chip to its edge, and the other has some scratching to its surface. They are still operational as chargers, or would make great decorative pieces around the kitchen. 10 x 10 Inches.
