Delightful Antique Société Anonyme Creil & Montereau Faience Earthenware Story Plates, made in 1886, in a set of four, depicting Les Sports. Each of these figural cabinet plates have crisp black & white transfer printed illustrations surrounded by a red floral border. Story plates, or "Assiettes Parlantes" {talking plates} were quite popular and produced by many fine faience houses in the mid to late 1800's.

These four illustrate sports, Foot-Ball, Equitation, canotage and aerostation. These are particularly collectable due to the nature of the subjects, football, horse riding, boating and then the Zeppelin with the Eiffel in the background. Considered "fine" plates, which refers to the ability of the transfer process to replicate rather finely drawn images.

Decorative addition to your collection of antique French faience, perfect to display on a wall, and a luxury gift to someone you love who adores rare French faience plates. A lovely set, great theme these are fabulous decorative accents, don't miss them! 

  • Measure: 6~1/2".
