    I really fell in love with this plate. Looks very old and masterful in painting. I have seen very few pieces that I have fallen this much in love with.
    Please tell me anything you can think of regarding this piece.

      That's quite a piece of pottery! From where did you get it?
    2. Efesgirl Efesgirl, 5 years ago
      The mark on the back looks like "TS".
    3. ronsoverstuffedattic, 5 years ago
      I bought it at an estate sale in Long Island for $10. I don't know why but just as I was about to leave the person who was holding on to it put it down almost right in front of me.
      I once had an old plate similar in age to this and made the stupid mistakenof selling it. I am keeping this one.
    4. ronsoverstuffedattic, 5 years ago
      I think they put it down because of the repaired crack on the back.
    5. Efesgirl Efesgirl, 5 years ago
      ron - it's not uncommon for old pieces of tin glazed earthenware to have damage.
      $10 was a good price.
      I have an old tin glazed bowl posted here that looks like it has been through Waterloo. Dates to around 1820.

      Love the birds flying in to pick over the freshly tilled soil. Very evocative image.
    7. ho2cultcha ho2cultcha, 5 years ago
      what a beautiful plate! i think it's either Mexican or Spanish talavera.
    8. ronsoverstuffedattic, 5 years ago
      Interesting that you say it's Spanish. I have seen that or a similar style on Spanish work.
    9. ronsoverstuffedattic, 5 years ago
      Interesting comment about the birds. They look like crows do you think it is symbolic like crows are always waiting to pick away at your hard labor or is it something less sinister.
    10. ronsoverstuffedattic, 5 years ago
      I do see some resemblance to Talavera but it is also close to French Faience.
    11. ho2cultcha ho2cultcha, 5 years ago
      the figures look like they could be french, but the border [most esp. the colors, but also the design] are definitely either spanish or mexican. i have some pieces that it looks very much like. for mexico, there were only a handful of talavera kilns, and even less in spain, so the TS should not be that difficult to track down. i think...
    12. ronsoverstuffedattic, 5 years ago
      Thanks, I will definitely research that. I really love the quality of the art so I really want to know as much as I can about this piece.
    13. ho2cultcha ho2cultcha, 5 years ago
      it might even be from the first half of the 20th century and stand for Talavera Spain. i would have thought it would be TE - Talavera Espana, but i actually saw some similar ones w/ the S for spain. not exact though.

      The look and feel of the piece is that it has far more age then 20th century. Might be hard to tell with the pictures.
    16. ButtonCollector, 5 years ago
      It looks very much like French Faience. Google "Quimper pottery" and you'll find items with very similar artwork. I really think it's Quimper.
    17. ButtonCollector, 5 years ago
      The mark looks like the "HR" found on some Quimper pieces. Check out oldquimper.com
    18. ronsoverstuffedattic, 5 years ago
      Wow!!! I think you solved the mystery. Thanks so much. I am an artist and I really love this plate. It's raw primitive feel. I am really happy to know the style. Thanks to everyone for helping out.
    19. ronsoverstuffedattic, 5 years ago
      You are absolutely right. It looked like TS to me but I now see it is an H and an R. Thanks again. Really exciting to see that this really is such a rare piece of art.
    20. ronsoverstuffedattic, 5 years ago
      Thanks button collector so much, I don't think I would have ever found that out without you. I think I will really treasure this plate even more.
    21. bananapeel, 5 years ago
      It really is lovely.
    22. ronsoverstuffedattic, 5 years ago
      Yes I fell in love with all primitive style art some years ago. This is the type of art Picasso drew his inspiration from.
    23. bananapeel, 5 years ago
      I hadn't thought of the birds as having meaning, but that is a very interesting idea to explore. Because of the shape of their wings, I though they might be small gulls and that the plate depicted a coastal farming area. But, after reading your comment, I can see that they do resemble crows as they glide and prepare to land. Loved seeing it.
    24. ivorhughespics, 1 year ago
      I came across this image while researching Henriot pottery. The mark is nothing like HR. It is clearly TS. The shades are subtly different to C19th Quimoer and much more like Talavera. The costume is definitely not Bréton. Much more likely Spanish than French.
