Transferware plate that is No. 1 Canotage (boating) from the Les Sports Series by Creil et Montereau Terre de Fer France. Transfer image that shows a man and woman individually rowing small, but rather heavy looking wooden boats across a body of water, while a young woman in bathing gear holds an oar by a child on a dock in the background. Off in the distance a man is fishing. Interestingly the rowing gentleman in straw 'boater' hat is wearing short pants and a light, short sleeved shirt. Suitable clothing both for strenuous outdoor exertion and the potential need to swim, should his boat capsize. Meanwhile, the female rower in her jaunty feathered hat is almost completely covered in clothing. Long sleeved blouse buttoned up to the neck and a full, long skirt that would quickly become sodden and pull her down in the water while making it nearly impossible to swim were she to fall overboard.
Scalloped edge plate with center well 6.5 inches in diameter. 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.
