Beautiful French Porcelain Cabinet Plate from Francois Boucher "Pastorale" Painting. Late 1800's
This beautiful porcelain cabinet plate, dates back to possibly around 1910, Edwardian period. The plate has a reproduction of a painting by Francois Boucher, a pastoral scene dating to 1759, titled La Marotte (La Musette). The scene depicts a landscape of France in which he places handsomely dressed Dresden shepherd and shepherdess playing at a dandified comedy of the Simple Life. It is beautifully executed in a hand finished transfer print. The colors are vibrant and lively. The edge of the plate is akin to blush ivory with a gilt Rococo or late Baroque style pattern. All the other pieces I have seen with this transfer is in reverse to this one, making this one very unique. Around the transfer the artist has painted beautiful scenery. On the cobalt rim he has added raised gold enamel designs. There are no chips or cracks; manufacturing anomalies may exist, the occasional tiny iron speck, dust 'bump' in the glaze, etc.
Backstamp: gold fleur de lis underglaze
Measures: 10 3/8"
