Splendid hand thrown pottery plaque with armorial crests. I believe the crest is for Geneva Switzerland and leads me to believe this is most likely French or Swiss. Completely hand made and a great example. Does have some fine underglaze crazing and a very minor chips to mostly tips of a few oak leaves, but is solid and overall very good condition. Signed on back as shown, and dated c1885. Very heavy and solid measuring 13 3/4" diameter and 3" high when laid flat. Super heavy!
