This wonderful old plaque depicts a gentleman sitting at a table smoking a pipe enjoying a beverage. He is dressed in period cloths, with a purple blue shirt. The band on his hat is also a purple color with two pom poms adding a nice touch. The plaque is signed on the left hand side by the artist. We believe the signature to be Daniel Pot Jr. We have had many pieces of faience from HB and very very few are signed so we feel this one is a little special. This piece has a small hairline that is visible on the underside but is hard to see on the front side. There are no other chips or cracks on this wonderful old piece. It displays very nicely in a stand. IT IS RARE TO FIND ANTIQUE FAIENCE IN "LIKE NEW" CONDITION BECAUSE OF WEAR FROM USE AND AGE. TINY GLAZE FLAKES AND CRAZING IS NORMAL AND ADDS CHARACTER TO EACH PIECE.
Backstamp: HB Cie 8 this is hand written.
Measures: 10 ¼" L x 6" W
