French Antique Dinner Plates ~ SOLD
People who bought this item also bought
Beautiful set of six French antique dinner plates, early 1900s. Each have the same design depicting flowers & leaves, and a hidden trumpet player among the trailing vines!
The transferware is blue-grey in colour, a couple of plates are slightly more greyer in tone than the others, adds charm and authenticity to the set! No chips or cracks, a few very light brownish areas due to age (mostly on the back of a couple of plates), minor crazing. Just enough to give a lovely patina and the ceramic glaze is excellent.
Manufacturer's stamp on the reverse of each, these are Terre de Fer in the 'Avellan' pattern.
A stunning set to keep for many years, these would make a wonderful gift for a house warming or engagement also.
Note they are slightly smaller than today's contemporary dinner plates! Measure 23cm across
