The Pouyat family was one of the oldest French families connected with the Limoges porcelain industry. Jean Pouyat's grandfather has a faience factory in the 1760's.
This beautiful hand painted cabinet plate was expertly executed in a home-studio environment, circa 1910. The motif is branches of vivid pink and yellow rose blossoms nestled among leaves in shades of light-to-dark green, medium brown and gray. The background is a mottled light pastel green with highlights of darker green and brown with a narrow emerald green edge.
The plate measures 8 3/8" across and carries mark #5 in green "J P over L over France" circa 1894-1931, designating the Jean Pouyat Limoges Company. There are no cracks, chips or repairs. Gorgeous piece of art.
