This is a 19th century French Limoges artist painted porcelain plate. The porcelain maker is Jean Pouyat. The artist's signature is on the back of the plate, above the gold number nine, and it can only be seen with a magnifying glass under strong light, because the gold enamel on the signature has faded. The signature does not show in the photo. The artist's signature is J. Lacy. The number 9 has a faded "1" after it, meaning the artist painted the plate in 1891.
The plate is approximately 8 5/8" in diameter. The shape of the plate shows edges that are like shells or scallops, and highlighted in gold.
The face of the plate shows beautiful bright yellow daffodils, with touches of brown and green. The grassy leaves or stems are green, gray and brown.
There are no chips, cracks or crazing. There is some rubbing wear to the gold on the edge of the plate.
The green underglaze mark is J.P. underscored by L. followed by France.
