Antique Transferware Plate, made by Longwy, of France, stunning in blue on cream colored ground. So beautiful and decorative, features flowers, birds, and a scene of an old chateau in the background. A collectable wonder with two larger birds on a branch in the foreground, and 7 birds flying down to visit. The image was based on 19th century copperplate engravings.
French aesthetic pottery at its best, this design is full of whimsy and just delightful. Wonderful to display in a French Country hutch. In good antique condition, with the craquelure you should see in a plate more than 100 years old. There are no chips or cracks. Measures 9-1/2" in diameter.
