Charming & rare set of seven antique French 8" cabinet or 'story' plates, a Creil & Montereau souvenir set entitled "Les Plaisirs Du Menage" or "Pleasures of the Household"! All with matching black & white borders consisting of a wonderful array of patterns & foliate garland, the centers with grisaille style comedic scenes related to the marriage & household theme. A set of seven here, each unique and numbered and includes a variety of serious and moderately funny scenes. All have matching maker marks that date between 1884-1920 and read "B & Cie. (Barluet and Company) Depose, Creil et Montereau".
Good-very good condition. One with a visible crack near one rim, a few tiny rim nips but in overall fine shape and great for wall or cabinet displayed decorative pieces! Can't get much more of that desirable French appeal! See pictures for measurements.
