The legend of the unicorn is beautifully depicted on this collectors plate titled Hunt of the Unicorn, one of a series of limited edition plates issued starting in 1977. The plates were produced by the Robert Haviland & C. Parlon factory on fine Limoges porcelain. The scenes are from the world-famous unicorn tapestries that date to the late 1400s.
The plate, which measures 10 inches in diameter, is beautifully rendered in colors and detail that match the tapestries as authentically as possible. The plate comes in its original box with a pamphlet that explains how it was created and gives the story of the unicorn legend. Condition is excellent.
