After a visit to the town of Sevres, France, this was brought back as souvenir. I am not sure how this was acquired but this is a factory second due to flaws. This was rejected due to a bump in the glaze and two chips on the back side and did not earn its factory stamp on the back. I do not know which factory in Sevres. All the details of this are hand painted and it is signed by the artist, Moreau. Hand titled on the back, Louis XIII force le Pas de Lure. I see some light wear on some of the gold and a couple tiny scratches but nothing that takes away from the picture. The chip on the lower left measures about 3/8 wide and long. The plate measures 9-1/4 inches diameter. Still a beautiful plate with a picture of king Louis XIII going to battle. The three small pictures around the edges are different military barracks from a stone fortification to tent cities. The main picture is the troops pushing the front line forward in battle. In the distance is another army. The hand painted gilding has olive branches and designs burnished around the three small pictures. If it weren’t for the flaws this would be an awesome plate. This would look great in a curio or display case.
