This is a very old platter or Chop Plate made by the French Majolica / Faience Company known as Gien. The decorations have been done in an enamel transfer. It has a band with blue, gold designs in a soft blue background. The main color of the platter is a bluish white. It appears as the tin glaze was not put on very thick and the faience is showing through. On two side of this piece there are two faces with leaf like designs on top of their heads and a royal blue beard. It gives off a winter appearance as if it were old man winter. The heads are in a cartouche and from this cartouche are scrolls or royal blue, green yellow orange all outlined in black. IT IS RARE TO FIND ANTIQUE FAIENCE / MAJOLICA IN "LIKE NEW" CONDITION BECAUSE OF WEAR FROM USE AND AGE. TINY GLAZE FLAKES AND CRAZING IS NORMAL AND ADDS CHARACTER TO EACH PIECE.

Backstamp: Castle with Gien in banner underneath

Measures: 11 1/2 " W
