Boch Frères dessert plates model Canton (or the Sage on the veranda). Polychrome Asian-inspired décor. These plates were produced by the BOCH pottery in La Louvière around 1860, during the Napoleon III era.
I own 6 plates, they are all in perfect condition. No splinters, no hair, no breaches, nothing.
The price shown is for 1 plate.
This Canton motif is described in "Le Dictionnaire des motifs de la faïence fine imprimée en Belgique", written by Monique Verboomen and Roger Van Schoute, éditions Racine:
"Two women carrying dishes are heading to a house that houses a man seen from behind. Wing decorated with flowers. Blue print under cover, highlights of colors (red, yellow and green). Red-brown net on the edge of the pieces. The whole is often covered with a lustrous varnish. There are dinner or coffee services and toilet services. Some pieces are printed on rock shapes. Fancy mark printed in blue in a frame of rinceaux and flowers: CANTON / B.F. ... Second half of the nineteenth century (circa 1860-1865)... "
