One of my very favorite French transfer patterns! Decorative and highly collectable French Faience Plates, Assietes Cruise or shallow dinner plates or bowls, made by Longwy, France, by Fernand and Hippolyte d'Huart in 1885. Stunning design featuring birds perched on wild rose branches, surrounded by butterflies and other French wild flowers, gorgeous!
From an estate collector, made of cream earthenware with a high gloss glaze, the transfers are crisp and beautifully detailed. These are in very good condition for their age, this pattern is so highly sought out by collectors that it is getting quite difficult to find. If you love these, snap them up to add to your collection, or to begin one. They are lovely to display as art in your kitchen or dining room, are just as happy to serve a salad, a beautiful arrangment of fruit, or luxury soaps in your guest bath. Each measures 9~3/8" x 1~1/2" h. Two of the patterns are the same, one is different as shown.
