OFFERED TODAY IS A VERY FINE FRENCH FAIENCE PLATE I FOUND IN THE EAST OF FRANCE.

THIS BEAUTIFULLY ORNATE PLATE FEATURES A FRENCH PICTURE RIDDLE!! FOR THOSE OF YOU SPEAKING FRENCH, YOU CAN USE THIS IN YOUR GAME OF SHIRADES, THE ANSWER IS ON THE BACK!!!

THE SCENES ON THE PLATE ARE CLUES TO THE RIDDLE THAT YOU MUST DECIFER. I HAVE TRANSLATED THE RIDDLE FOR YOU IN ENGLISH WHICH IS "GUARD THY SELF SUCH THAT THOU WILL JUDGE OTHERS ON THEIR APPEARANCE".

THIS EXTREAMLY UNUSUAL PLATE MEASURES 7.75 INCHES IN DIAMETER WITH A LIGHTLY SCALLOPED RIM THAT IS HIGHLY DECORATED WITH FLOWERS AND BASKET WEAVE CARTOUCHES.

IT IS CLEARLY MARKED ON THE BACK WITH "MUSEE DE LA FAIENCERIE DE GIEN" (MEUSEUM OF FAIENCE OF GIEN), AND THEN "GIEN FRANCE" WITH THE CASTLE IN THE CENTER. THERE IS ALSO THE ANSWER TO THE RIDDLE UNDERNEATH IN FRENCH.

IT IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION WITH NO CHIPS, CRACKS OR REPAIRS. WE DO HAVE A FEW OTHER DIFFRENT RIDDLE PLATES!!! COLLECT THEM ALL!!!!

THIS WOULD BE A FINE ADDITION TO YOUR ANTIQUE OR VINTAGE MAJOLICA, FAIENCE OR FINE PORCELAIN COLLECTION!!!
