An elegant pair of antique plate dating back to the 1800s. These pieces by Villeroy & Boch were created using a moulded relief technique and glazed in majolica. The beautiful portrait of a lady in the centre of the plate is highlighted in a lovely turquoise colour with the rim of the plate coloured in a delicious olive colour. The second plate features a charming portrait of a young boy in a slightly more green turquoise, framed with the same olive green. These plates are so lovely and have aged very well with a few chips of glaze are missing.
