Rare Oxblood Majolica Plate ~ Rabbits & Rhyme

Sarreguemines (France ) Germany 1912

This plate is a delightful surprise. The color is brilliant, and the entire plate is a joy to behold. The plate measures 8 inches in diameter, decorated in flambé or oxblood majolica tin glaze. The decoration is press moulded. It features 3 rabbits running in a circle encircled by thistle. On the outer rim of the plate is a rhyming riddle:

~Rabbits three and ears as few, Yet each rabbit has its two.~

The plate is dated 1912 and signed with an imprinted ‘Sarreguemines.’ The plate is one of the few Sarreguemines plates with English words rather than French or German. The plate was made for the English speaking export market (UK and US) during the period between 1871 and 1914 when the city of Sarreguemines (and therefore, the company) was part of Germany.

The amusing plate is in great condition, with no chips cracks or repairs. Stilt marks and minor irregularities in the glaze, original to the making. Made for rabbit lovers and other admirers of animals and wildlife.
