A vintage Henriot Quimper, hand painted plate showing an Eskimo, Inuit trapper or hunter with his gun and snow shoes.
Plate measures nine and a half inches round with yellow, green and red stripes around the outer edge. The back is marked in blue with Pient a La Main, Henriot Quimper, France, Pour Ogilvy's Montreal. This plate would have been imported from France to Ogilvy's of Montreal for sale. Ogilvy's was and still is a prominent retail establishment in downtown, Montreal and was founded in 1866.
Plate is in wonderful condition, having no nicks, chips, cracks or crazing. No missing paint.
Please see the matching plate in my shop showing an Eskimo, Inuit woman with papoose, baby on her back.
