Charming antique French Sarreguemines marked 2pc 7 1/4" cabinet plate set, "La Vie Militaire" with black & white lattice & foliate borders including military profile medallions & flags and delightful figural center scenes with titles or inscriptions! Part of a more extensive numbered series, this pair is numbered 4 & 5 and are entitled "Ecole D'Equitation" and "Ecole De Cavalerie Maniement D'Fusil" or, roughly translated, "Riding School" and "Cavalry Rifle School". Wonderful scenes with soldiers at attention and on horseback! Both plates have black maker marks on the back that replicate the facade border medallion & flag with "Sarreguemines, France". This is one pair, we'll be listing other small incomplete sets of similar souvenir cabinet plates this week so be sure to browse some while you're with us. They're fabulous grouped and displayed, whether in a curio cabinet, hutch or even simply wall hung. Wonderful!
Very good condition. Possibly a tiny edge nip or two but no larger chips, no cracks or other damage to note. Each has a 7 1/4" diameter.
