T Luc has done it again! This is truly a master porcelain artist at his best. He has started his masterpiece by using one of Coronet’s beautifully scalloped, raised relief china blank. He has painted the background a purple gray color depicting the side of a building. On the lower portion of this plaque he has painted greens and browns for the ground. He has added several large rocks against the wall in the same purple gray color. The main focus of his masterpiece is a beautiful barefoot peasant girl. She is leaning against the wall and appears to be mending a piece of lilac cloth. The facial features of this girl are so well done and so life like. For her attire he has painted a red skirt with a golden apron, blue bodice and white blouse. The gold portion of her apron has multiple shades making it appear that there are folds in the material. Luc has painted a white headscarf upon her beautiful chestnut hair. He has added white enamel to the neckline, sleeves, and cuffs of the blouse and also has accent the headscarf. The most amazing thing about this painting is that he has added a soft profile shadow that her body would cast against the wall as if she was just idly standing basking in the sunshine, it almost makes you feel like your are there!! Several similar plates can be seen on page 73 of “Collector’s Encyclopedia of Limoges Porcelain by Mary Gaston”. The plate has no chips, cracks or crazing, a very light scratch does appear on her apron, please see photos. I'm sure this would look beautiful anywhere in your home and would make a nice addition to anyones collection.
