Decorative and rare to find collectible "Assiettes Parlante" {talking plate} made by Choisy Le Roi in the 19th century. Faience Earthenware Story Plates are considered "fine" plates, which refers to the ability of the transfer process to replicate rather finely drawn images, in this case of a Braconnier, or poacher. His gun drawn, ready for the shoot, a rabbit running in the background. {Hunting on someone else's land was a crime punishable by death at one time in France.}

From a collector's estate, the colors of the transfer in black and the bright blue borders featuring a stag, hunting horns, dogs, fowl, and hunting bag all make this plate so desirable. A fabulous addition to your collection of French faience story plates, Hunting memorabilia, or to give as a luxury gift to someone you love. Perfect to display in a gentleman's office or library, too. Incised mark on the back. Measures 7~7/8".
