I really enjoy this wall hanging. It is colorful. I believe the arch in the picture it the the Arc de Triomphe on the Place Charles de Gaulle. If it is, the street maybe Avenue des Champs-Élysée. The piece is signed Italy on the back. I found this at a small antique fair in Walnut Ohio many years ago. It is 13" in diameter. I am still trying to figure the writing on the piece. The word "Le" means "the" but the rest is Greek to me. Well not really Greek but French.

    Nice plate but it might be more fanciful than factual. As to the French I have some thought for you to consider:
    le lieu - the spot, the place
    le lien - the link, the knot
    le rien - the nothing
    All are possible as the names of bars, nightclubs or hotels. I stayed in Paris at a very small hotel in the seventies that was called "l'Hotel du Nil". It was carved out of a corner in the cinema area of Paris....expensive real estate, they had hardly any space at all, but "location, location". If that is the Arc de Triomphe then you are talking serious real estate.

    vetraio 50..........Thank you so much for your information. I am amazed at what people know about certain items on this site. The only thing I did was to try and match up real photos of Arc de Triomphe with the one on the plate. Again thank you for your expert analysis on my piece. Mark
