Lovely pair of French Salins-les-Bains majolica asparagus plates with a yellow, basket weave border, four asparagus on artichoke leaves and an indentation on the side or sauce well. This model appears in a book by Barbotine expert Maryse Bottero. The name Salins-les-Bains comes from its factory home town and main industries --salt and thermal baths.

In the 60's Salins was absorbed by Sarreguemines. Perfect to display on a French country / provence / provincial style plate rack or vaisellier, in a dining room, kitchen or even a bedroom.
