The plate shows a young woman and children reaching over a wall to obtain juicy ripe apples. The neighbor whose apples they appear to be is not very happy with them. The wording “Faut PAS Toucher Aux Pommes Du Voisin” translate to something like “Must not touch the neighbor's Apples”. The piece was designed by Froment-Richard aka Antoine-Albert Richard, who has initialed this plate F.R. by the tree. 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. 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.
