This is a nice hand painted majolica plate made in Italy, by the S.C. Richard Company. Both white kittens have piercing eyes , pink ears and what appears to be soft, white, fluffy hair. With the added dimension of majolica there is a certain life like quality to them. The company logo is on the back in green ink, under the glaze . It is a lion holding a flag and shield. This nice little dish was probably made in the 1920's. At this time, the Richard's factory had become affiliated with the Ginori factory. This small dish is slightly less than 6 inches in diameter and it is in excellent condition.
