This is absolutely gorgeous! I would love to see the remainder of the set. The plate is a heavier quality making it more durable. The plate has a beautiful white background and an impressed decorative rim. Beautiful hand painted design of three French Guinea hens decorate the front. The colors are muted but still stand out against the creamy white background. The plate has a crack on the rim that goes through and is 1 1/2" long, please see pictures. IT IS RARE TO FIND ANTIQUE IRONSTONE IN "LIKE NEW" CONDITION BECAUSE OF WEAR FROM USE AND AGE. TINY GLAZE FLAKES AND CRAZING IS NORMAL AND ADDS CHARACTER TO EACH PIECE.
I have included a picture our companion plate that has a chicken and hen PLT1429.
Backstamp: Terre de Fer HB & Cie in a medallion
