Charming, rustic French Rouen faience shallow bowl / deep dish decorated with polychrome decoration on a white ground. It is clearly marked on the underside Rouen as shown. The plate is inscribed with a Cadet Rouselle verse. Cadet Rouselle is an old French children's song about a real life excentric character by the name of Guillaume Rousselle (1743-1807) from Auxerre. The inscription reads as follows:

Cadet Rouselle a des plats bleus
Qui sont beaux qui n'vont pas au feu
Si vous voulez en faire emplette
Addressez vous a La Fayette
Ah Ah Ah mais vraiment
Cadet Rouselle est bon enfant
1792

The verse roughly translates as:

Cadet Rouselle has blue dishes
They are beautiful but do not go in the fire
If you want to buy them
Address La Fayette
Ah Ah Ah, but really
Cadet Rouselle is a good child
1792

It comes ready to display with two factory made perforations on the back. Perfect for a French Country / Provincial / Provence decor. In very good condition with minor edge wear to tin glaze typical of faience as shown. Shipped fully insured with tracking number.

Measurements: 9 1/2" diameter by 1 7/8" deep.
