This is a very beautiful majolica plate that was manufactured in Choisy le Roi France. The faience factory produced majolica from 1860 until 1910. The "H B" stands for Hippolyte Boulenger a director at the pottery. The factory's work was some of the most delicate produced in France. This plate is from an animal plate series manufactured by the Boulenger Factory. This exceptionally beautiful faience plate is a companion piece to the mallard duck and the peacock plate which are listed in our store. The rooster has a bright crimson comb, brown back and blue gray breast and tail. Raised crimson flowers and grasses are in an olive green background. The upper portion of the plate has a light cream background. The rooster plate is one of the known series of nine and is highly sought after by collectors of early Quimper, and French faience so don't let it slip away! Hippolyte Boulenger & Cie. Choisy is renowned for its high quality painting and animal plates. This piece has two small rim chips on the underside of the plate that can not be seen from the front. IT IS RARE TO FIND VINTAGE AND ANTIQUE MAJOLICA IN "LIKE NEW" CONDITION BECAUSE OF WEAR FROM USE AND AGE. TINY GLAZE FLAKES AND CRAZING IF PRESENT IS NORMAL AND ADDS CHARACTER TO EACH PIECE. This would make a wonderful addition to any majolica collection. Please see our other animal series plates!
