This old beauty has been masterfully hand painted with a wonderful winter scene. The artist has placed a large house with fences next to a stream. Snow covers the rooftops, trees and the ground. A woman is out throwing feed to her chickens and roosters that are waiting for their breakfast. This piece has been done with very subdued colors which you would see on a cold, cloudy, winter day. It has been accented with a deep blue-gray rim. The platter has crazing, some minor paint loss, small rim chipping and a hairline. No breaks or repairs. Please see pictures for condition. 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.
Backstamp: HB Choisy impressed under Black paint pallet with HC. We have seen another platter similar where the impressed mark was more pronounced than this one. If the black was removed this impressed mark would be more visible.
Measures 14” L x 8” W
