A rare Eastern French FAIENCE plate in red-pink, green, and blue enamels of a noble fierce eagle wearing a crown from the Strasbourg region, Les Islettes or Luneville, dating to early 19th century. The plate is exceptional in detail, finely painted and superbly colored in the enamels typical of Eastern French faience of the 18th century. The fiesty eagle symbolizes Napoleon. If so the plate dates accuarately expect the date 1810, before Napoleon was defeated by Wellington at Waterloo in 1815. The 8.34 Inch plate is in very fine condition except for some very minor edge glaze wear or loss, typical of early faience.
