It is a rare series that was made for the department store Galeries Lafayette in Paris. Galeries Lafayette was founded in 1894. Created two years later, it is a sophisticated and glamorous series that women like. Flowers look like cherry or peach blossoms.
This is a versatile 23cm flat plate. Since it is a little deep, it can be used for dishes and sweets with sauce, which is very convenient.
"Terre de fer" is pottery (semi-ceramic semi-porcelain) to which a lot of kaolin and feldspar are added. It was mass-produced in the second half of the 19th century. It was made to be whiter and more robust. This plate also has "Terre de fer" written on the back.
It is neatly penetrated. There are some stains from penetration, but this is also the charm of antiques, penetration. There are no chips or cracks, and it is in very good condition as an antique item that has been around for more than 100 years, but since it is old, there are some stains and scratches. Please understand before purchasing.
This is the price of one plate. With backstamp.
