The plate shows a young woman with a child that is holding arrows and a bow. It appears that the mother has approached a junk dealer in hopes to trade maybe the bow and arrows for some goods. The child is very unhappy about the situation. The piece was designed by Froment-Richard aka Antoine-Albert Richard. He has initialed FR on the fishing net. This artist was born in 1845. He worked with Barluet Creil Montereau Manufactory since 1876 and the Sarreguemines Factory. His main themes are around children designed within delightful scenes. The most known patterns are the "Service Parisien" for Creil Montereau and the "Enfants Richard" decor for Sarreguemines. Enfants Richard and Service Parisien pieces are exhibited in several museums in France. No chips or cracks, the colors are still nice and bright. 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.
