Transferware plate that is No. 10 Automobile from the Les Sports Series by Creil et Montereau Terre de Fer France. Transfer image shows several fashionably attired ladies in an early chauffeured automobile cruising the boulevard to see and be seen. Their machine has been gussied up with swags of fabric and flowers and appears to even have bouquets of flowers attached to the spokes of the wheels. One of the ladies holds a small bouquet in her hand, which perhaps the gentleman at the side of the car has presented to her. Meanwhile the lady walking her dog on the sidewalk on the other side of the vehicle observes the scene and appears unamused.
Scalloped edge plate with center well 6.5 inches in diameter, excellent condition with no damage. Impressed capital F and the number 6 on its reverse next to a red stamped manufacturer's mark.
I have other plates in this series listed, each representing a different 'sport.'. Buy more than one and I'll combine shipping costs, just wait to pay after you place your order so I can adjust the actual total due for you.
