French J. Vieillard & Cie Bordeaux Plates with Pastoral Scenes, 19th Century

Nine French 19th century J. Vieillard & Cie faience dining plates from Bordeaux, depicting pastoral scenes and sold individually. Born in the Bordelaise area of France between 1845 and 1895 in the manufacture of Jules Vieillard, each of this charming set of nine dinner plates depicts idealistic scenes of pastoral life. Surrounded by geometrical and lace-reminiscent motifs, each center is adorned with a particular scene, for example fishing or the depiction of the characters Annette and Lubin. Marked in the back J. Vieillard & Cie Bordeaux, the plates are part of a production aiming at emulating the finesse of porcelain. Highly decorative and subdued in their color, these nine faïence plates will be excellent decorative accents in any home, particularly hung on a wall or displayed in a vaisselier.
