$55.32

Shipping to United States: $55.32

Antique French large oval ironstone faience platter or plate, in transfer decorated terre de fer. This pattern of camelias is decorated in the teal blue palette on a creamy white ground.
The piece is from the Faiencier de Castres, from the Tarn area of France. It is rare since most of the output from this producer is unmarked and this has both maker and pattern name on the base back stamp.
The age of this item is probably late nineteenth century.

Size is approx 37 cm x 27 cm and 4 cm deep. Condition is reasonable with no chips, there is of course some scratching on the surface and crazing, adding to the charm of the antique French item. On the base there is evidence of fissures in the clay, dating to time of manufacture, caused by drying of the clay body before or during firing. These don't go through the body of the plate.

DELIVERY DETAILS. PLEASE READ
We are able to post out parcels from Metropolitan France and shipping fees are shown. Please allow plenty of transit time, as European post is notoriously slow!

*Please note that most deliveries within France and some other European Union countries are usually made to a Pont Relais collection point, there are usually a number of these located in shops and supermarkets in each town, and you will be given the opportunity to specify which one you prefer if this service is available for your location. Otherwise I will select the shop with the longest opening hours within your area. If you would prefer La Poste domestic delivery PLEASE ASK for a quote.
Deliveries to most other European destinations are generally to your doorstep unless it is much cheaper to use Pont Relais.
Outside of Europe we use La Poste International parcel service.
The sales tax is included in any sales so there should be nothing extra due to pay when your parcel arrives, subject to customs clearance. *The customer is responsible for any import duties incurred for an item. We will require a PHONE NUMBER to add to the customs forms, to help prevent any delays or transit problems. If you refuse delivery of an item due to customs costs, please be aware that your parcel's postage costs will be forfeit, although we are happy to refund the item purchase price upon return.

Our items are carefully selected antique and vintage pieces from France and they show the character and charm of years of use. We do not sell new or reproduction items so you can expect to find signs of the age and life that the piece has led. We believe this history adds to the story of an item. Obvious damage and faults will always be mentioned in our descriptions but minor age-related condition issues are not considered a detriment.
