Wonderful Old French Faience Cabinet Plate ~ Decorated with Ducks, Boat & House ~ St Champeth E. C. Samaritane LATE 1800'S
This old beauty has a soft cream background with reddish brown transfers. In the foreground are three ducks on the shore, a bird in flight and a tree that reaches up and around the side of the rim. In the background of this design is two geese on the water, a boat and an houses along the shore line. I have done extensive research on this maker and have not found anything to be able to date this piece. IT IS RARE TO FIND 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: St champeth E. C. Samaritane Terre De Fer (translated-Fired Earth)
