Outstanding French porcelain ornithological plate with yellow ground band with alternating medallions of birds and antique heads in profile painted in grisaille all surrounded by gilt borders. The yellow border has a pattern of small blue and gilt dots known as " fond pointille " and " oiel de perdrix ". It is marked on the underside in blue forming a cartouche enclosing the letter R. We have seen similar items described as Sevres décor ornithologique Buffon (after the work of French naturalist Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte de Buffon (1707–1788). Services of this pattern were made in several colors and variations during the reign of Louis XVI, some of them completed decades later, after the French Revolution and Imperial period. A similar size and decoration plate (titled assiette unie ) in green is part of the online collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum. We have also seen oeil de perdrix hard paste porcelain examples done later as commemorative pieces. In very good condition as shown. Shipped fully insured with tracking number.

Measurements: 9 7/16" (24 cm) diameter approximately.
