Wonderful polychrome transfer two little girls and fish in a tank. One little girl is serenading the fish with her flute playing and the other is holding her ears, to cute! The piece was designed by Froment-Richard aka Antoine-Albert Richard. He has placed his FR initials under the fish tank. This plate has been drilled for hanging. No chips or cracks on this plate. 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.
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.
