Charming set of three armorial faience pottery decorative plates with a wavy border, outlined in blue, and decorated with fleur de lys -- a stylized form of the lily and the floral emblem of France. They are decorated with different coat of arms as follows:

1. The first plate has a divided shield with three fleur de lys on the upper half and three towers or castles on the bottom half. It is flanked by gryphons and topped with a town crown representing the French capital Paris.
2. The second one has a Porcupine (porc-epic in French) topped by two hunting horns or bugles filled with fruit and a Marquis crown. In heraldry the porcupine represents the untouchable and inaccessible. It was used by the Duke of Orleans and King Louis XII.
3. The third shield is decorated with a green flaming dragon wrapped around a crowned monogram. In heraldry, the dragon represents bravery and the protection of treasures.

Perfect for a French Provincial / country style decoration. Each plate comes with factory made perforations on the back to pass a string or wire from which to hang on a wall or display cabinet. In very good used condition with crazing, minor wear to paint, small losses to underside rim and imperfections from the time of manufacture typical of faience as shown. Shipped fully insured with tracking number.

Measurements: 7 7/8" (20 cm) diameter approximately.
