These two make me laugh! If you ever have owned a horse or ridden one that was just a little bit frisky or gay as the French termed it, you will definitely understand. The plates still have bright transfers and great detail in the decorations. Cavalier's #3 depicts a solder on the ground and a bucking horse ! In the background you see a soldier watching. #11 depicts a soldier holding on for dear life, while his horse s rearing up! There are two horses in the background both bucking and acting up. The rims of these plates have a nice teal blue decoration. # 3. On est reellement mieux assis que a cheval Translates to: It is actually better than sitting on horseback. #11. la cinquieme rère Translates to : "The fifth ???." These two are free from chips, #3 has a very tight hairline not through and through, can only be seen on the front. They both have little or no crazing. 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.
