    Ok. Now what kind of bizarre thing have I added to my menagerie? A bunch of people bathing feet on some old possibly French majolica. Who is the maker? This seems so familiar. I feel like I've seen this mark somewhere before and that's why I picked it up. Why is there a bunch of foot bathing happening on this thing?

      Google the Christian religious rite of footwashing.
