Child's Stick Spatter Stencil Miniature Plate

CAT & INSECT

Choisy le Roi ~ Luneville, France c1905

This is a stunning stick spatter stencil ware plate, originally part of a complete miniature children's dinner service. The plate measures about 4 7/8" in diameter, with a scalloped rim.

The plate is playfully decorated with a stencil of a cat chasing a dragonfly or bug. The border has a cross-hatched fence and flower, applied in a two-color motif of bright green and black on a creamy faience earthenware blank.

The plate is unmarked. It was made by Choisy le Roi, a faiencerie in Luneville region of France. It dates to c. 1905. Similar in appearance and manufacture to the earthenware sets made in the Staffordshire region of English.

The piece is in great condition with no chips, cracks or repairs. Stilt marks along the rim, and minor transfer irregularities original to the making. This little piece was impeccably potted and the decoration was applied with a good deal of attention to detail.

Children's sponge ware or stencil ware of this quality is quite scarce and highly sought after. The naive cat and insect in contrasting colors are simple and striking. A purrfect gift for the cat lover in your life. Please send us an email with any questions or if you would like to see additional photos. Thank you for shopping!
