Unusual Antique Soft Paste China Porcelain Plate Napoleonic Era French Soldiers For Sale
Napoleonic Era 8 1/4" Softpaste Plate
"L' APPRENTI CAVALIER"
Political Satire French Soldiers
Napoleonic era historic-romantic comical picture of political satire of period French soldiers. Industriously correct costuming, the historical subjects illustrate a seldom viewed area of the period prompted by poetry and legend.
This unusual plate is made of soft paste china with transfer decoration typical of the early 19th century. It is not marked by the maker but at the top front it has a "N" with a crown above. There is also a stylized ribbon surrounding the plate with written verses in French. I was unable to find out what the translation is. There is also a royal Eagle at the bottom of this busy decoration.
The plate is entitiled "L' APPRENTI CAVALIER" which translates to "The Apprentice Cavalier."
The plate has a 8 1/4" diameter. It has crazing in its glaze consistant with its age. There are no chips but there is an older 1 1/4" crack in the glaze that is noticeable on the back edge.(see scans) It has a cream colored background with black transfer decoration.
I acquired this historical plate from a local estate in the 1980's and have had it hanging in the house since.
