This distinctive French faience plate with an exceptionally short soldier toasting a giant fellow was made by Creil circa 1830. The scene in the center has the caption "Les extremes se touchent." The English translation is "Extreme Touch", as the pair literally clink glasses.
This plate is called a "story plate," because the scene illustrates the quote below it. The plate is a wonderful example of polychrome transferware. There are rich colors of deep blue, yellow, brown, gray, black, green, and deep red. The plate is 8 inches in diameter. On the bottom of the plate is the impressed "Creil" mark. The plate has no chips, hairlines, or repairs. It is in wonderful condition considering that it is almost 200 years old.
We have a total of 5 Creil plates, including this one. if you want a grouping for a wall, shelf or mantel display On plate has a variation on the border.
