Antique Fives-Lille French Majolica Artichoke/Asparagus Plate -SOLD


For your consideration, an Antique French Majolica plate made by Five-Lille, c. 1880-1900. This piece is for serving both Artichokes or Asparagus & shows images of both with parts of their plants. Beautifully colored in a glazing of greens & blues on a white ground, with a hint of lavender on the spear heads of the asparagus & the thistle-like head of the artichoke plant. The shaped rim conforms to the leaves & there is a deep sauce well.

Book Reference: “Artichauts et Asperges en Barbotine” by Maryse Bottero   p.89

A somewhat scarce plate in excellent condition but for some minor overall crazing, as can be expected.
