A nice historical porcelain plaque depicting Jules François Simon. Simon (1814 – 1896) was a French statesman and philosopher who was one of the leaders of the Opportunist Republicans faction. In 1868 Simon published La Politique radicale, which later became, along with Léon Gambetta’s Belleville manifesto of 1869, the basis of the Radical Party’s political program. He was the 38th Prime Minister of France and served in office from December 12, 1876 through May 17, 1877. The Plaque is large at 10" high x 7" wide, it is signed on the right side edge, see photo. The back is inscribed "Jules Simon depute 1868". The plaque is in good overall condition. It does have wear to the surface and a shallow chip on the back edge which you wouldn't see if it were in a frame, see photos. The Plaque would make an excellent addition to French History or Porcelain Plaque collection.
