Plate, 9” diameter. First period Porquier Beau, ca. 1890, and signed with their intersecting P and B on the back. Handsome Rouen-derived border frames the bold blazon of L’Orient, a city on the Brittany coast, about an hour and a half from Quimper. It was from this port that, long ago, ships sailed to and from the far east, trading in spices and porcelains. This plate would be a handsome addition to a collection of the armorial crests of Brittany. In perfect condition, $300, plus $15 shipping.
