Vintage French Faience Asparagus & Artichoke Plate
A rare late 19th Century French faience asparagus and artichoke plate from the Salins-les-Bains region of France. In typical French barbotine majolica fashion, this plate is richly colored and embossed with several purple head asparagus spears, a leafy artichoke plant and a deep sauce well for butter in the shape of an artichoke globe.
French majolica plates were hand molded and hand-painted and each plate is a unique piece, a one of a kind work of art.
Hand-made and hand-painted in France
Probably early 1900s
Not recommended for food
In excellent vintage condition, no chips or cracks, very light crazing
All orders ship within 3-5 business days after the order and payment is received but slight delays may occur during high season and holidays.
All orders ship out of our San Diego, CA warehouse and those in the IS will arrive within 2-9 days, depending on the shipping method selected.
We use USPS and UPS as our preferred shipping carriers as we're able to use discounted commercial shipping rates. At the time of shipping, we will select the most cost efficient and expeditious option for your order (USPS Priority/UPS Ground or 3 Day Select) - the less a package is in transit, the better chances of a safe arrival are.
Our website is integrated with USPS and UPS which means that shipping costs are automatically calculated during checkout based on your shipping address and size and weight of the box. That said, calculations are not always precise, particularly for multi product orders. If final shipping costs end up being less than what you paid, we will refund you the difference and if it ends up being more, we will bear that cost.
We do not charge any mark ups, handling fees or shipping insurance costs to our customers. We provide complimentary shipping insurance on all orders to protect you against damage that may occur during transit. We have safely shipped hundreds of fragile orders and we expertly package the porcelain and glass orders so you can rest assured that your order will arrive to you safely.
Due to significant new tax and customs implications as a result of Brexit, we are suspending all of our deliveries to the UK effective January 1, 2021. We apologize to our UK customers but as a small business we are unable to take on the large amount of requirements.
