Antique French faience pottery plate (Gien mark from sometime between 1860 and the late 1870s).

This is black transfer ware, a military scene from the Italian campaign of the French Emperor Napoleon III period. Beautifully detailed!

This plate depicts the Combat de Marignan (Marignan - Maringane? - battle).

Plate measures 8" in diameter, and is in very good condition without damage, amazing for a piece of this age. These plates are hard to find even in France, so I was delighted to find a number of these with different scenes. See our other pieces of Gien for more of them.
