A vintage, Henriot Quimper France hand painted plate showing an Eskimo, Inuit, lady with papoose on her back.
Plate is nine and a half inches round and has yellow, green and redish brown stripes on the edge.
Plate is in wonderful condition, having no nicks, chips, cracks or crazing. No missing paint, but the red stripe is not as vibrant as it should be.
