Exceptional 19th Century French Majolica Purple Asparagus Plate, a French majolica barbotine asparagus plate from Keller and Guerin, Luneville, in the Lorraine region of France. Four purple tipped asparagus lay on a bed of green leaves against a turquoise ground. This decorative plate features a scalloped rim with a basket weave design on a wide yellow border.
Seen in “Artichauts et Asperges en Barbotine,” by Maryse Bottero. Molded sauce well on one side. Excellent age related condition, beautiful to display in your French Country dining room hutch, so stunning with vivid glazing and vibrant colors. Individually molded, hand painted, then glazed, each is unique.
