French Faience Classical 12” Plaque of Mother & Child ~ H & B Hautin Boulenger Choisy Le Roi France 1836-1880

This remarkable old piece of faience has been finely hand painted showing a classical Grecian mother with her naked baby. The woman is dressed in beautiful cream, pink and yellow gowns. The yellow in the gown match the blond hair of the mother and child. The blue sash ties in with the blue head band on the baby and blue hair net on the mother. On the flower by her is beautiful blue and gold bowl with a green towel draped on it, a water pitcher that matches the bowl, and a basket. A small white dove looks on. Apparently she has either finished bathing her little one or is getting ready to. A tall golden oil lamp is ready to be lit when darkness falls. Behind her lays her distaff ready for her to spin the yarn when time allows. The large plaque is set inside a painted wooden frame which is original to the piece. The front has two decorative bosses and the back has hooks for attaching a hanging wire. Personally we would take the charger out and put give it a beautiful frame to compliment the artwork. This is personal taste and we leave that up to the new owner. We feel like this is an early piece from the time period possibly 1830's to 1840's.

IT IS RARE TO FIND ANTIQUE FAIENCE IN "LIKE NEW" CONDITION BECAUSE OF WEAR FROM USE AND AGE. TINY GLAZE FLAKES AND CRAZING IS NORMAL AND ADDS CHARACTER TO EACH PIECE.

Backstamp: impressed Grant Médaille D'Or over HB Choisy-Le-Roi
