B542 - SOLD
This is an absolutely delightful antique French ceramic plate dating from the 19th Century. It has a charming scene with 3 chubby winged cherubs languishing amongst the clouds.
The cherubs snuggle up on a throw and study a musical score, their quivver of arrows lying beside them. The cherubs are adorable - all soft and pink with little blue wings. The scene is depicted in lovely detail and the colours are sublime.
The plate is a lovely shade of antique white with a sublime shade of turquoise. The edge has a swirling effect highlighted with gilding. The gilding has now mellowed to create an effect that adds even more charm to this gorgeous plate.
Although timeworn the plate have no obvious chips or cracks.
It measures 22 cm (8.5 inches) in diameter.
This gorgeous plate is a real joy for lovers of cherubs and would be a worthy addition to any collection.
Another divine antique French find from La Belle Étoffe!
