Beautiful and cheerful majolica asparagus plate by the French pottery Longchamp. The large plate is in a charming square shape with wonderfully handpainted summer flowers on a creamy background. The border is ruffled and painted with drips of brown lines. Two plump asparagus spears grace each corner in raised relief. There is a large sauce well on one side of the plate. The entire plate shows lots of movement with the distinctive molding. On the base there is an impressed mark Longchamp Terre de Fer and the number 12678. The plate measures 9 1/2" square. It probably dates to around the 1920's and is in perfect condition. There is a companion plate in a round shape that I have listed(see photo).
