Many thanks for viewing. A lovely antique French plate, probably originating from a Nevers factory. The white tin-glazed (faience) ground painted in blue, black and warm grey, depicting a great scene of two figures, one of whom is on horseback, and all set beneath a tree and extensive landscape. This plate probably dates to around 1900. It is in the style of earlier istoriato Italian maiolica. Approx 25 cms diameter. There is a small chip c. 5mm to rim edge. The underside shows some manufacturing rubbing / sanding to the three firing spur marks (not damage as such). All items are packed with care, to a high standard and sent via tracked and signed for courier. I will post worldwide. Prices reflect size and weight when properly packed to provide adequate protection. Arrived on time and as described. If I could leave a million stars, I would. SUPERB: accurately described, well packed and sent quickly – highly recommended! IF THERE WAS A SCORE HIGHER THAN 5 STARS THIS EBAYER WOULD DESERVE IT A++++.
