PANSY FLOWERS WITH BIRDS

Choisy le Roi

Luneville, France

c 1880

This stunning transferware plate is a wonderful piece of 19th century transferware! The large plate measures 9 5/8 " in diameter and is transfer printed in chocolate brown.

It is imaginatively decorated with a twig rope with small leaves along the rim encircling a flower stem of oversized Pansy flowers and a branch with two perched birds, possibly LoveBirds gazing at the beauty of the spring flower. The image is based on a gorgeous copperplate engraving.

The piece resembles the transferware made in the Staffordshire region of England in the early to mid 19th century, but instead it was made by Choisy le Roi (late Creil Monereau) one of the faienceries in the Luneville region of France. French aesthetic pottery is full of whimsy and usually birds, flowers or fruit.

Condition is great, clean shiny and bright. No chips, no cracks, no hairlines and no repairs.
