Antique William the Conquerer French Faience Plate - For Sale
Antique William the Conquerer French Faience Plate
Great condition--no chips, cracks or repairs--on this high unusual antique French faience plate. As shown, this plate depicts William the Conquerer, the first Norman King of England. The plate is entirely hand-painted with a central image of William on horseback with a long spear and shield. He is accompanied by a man in similar attire. In addition, the elaborate border features geometric banding, filigree and eight eight birds symmetrically flanking floral garland.
Please pardon the flash on the bottom right of the plate. This plate measures 9 1/4" in diameter and, again, is in great condition. There is all-over crazing as would be expected of a 100+ year-old piece. An unusual and scarce piece for your collection.
