Awesome French Faience 13 ¾” W Charger / Plate ~ Hand Painted with Cherries and Bird ~ B & Cie Barluet & Co Monterbau France 1876 1884

This is definitely an oldie! If anyone has owned a cherry tree you know that the bird eat more than what you can pick!!! The artist depicts the birds in this cherry tree just waiting to feast on the ripe cherries. He has used browns, yellows and a soft purple in giving life to the features of this creature. He has placed the bird on a limb of green leaves and red ripe cherries. He has softened the motif by adding a soft baby blue and cream background. Some of the paint is flaking slightly and there is a chip on the plate's base. Please see pictures for condition. IT IS RARE TO FIND ANTIQUE EARTHENWARE 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: B & Cie Monterbau 35 impressed

Measures: 13 ¾" W
