This plate is from the 1970s and is 8 ¾" across. It is marked with St. Clement on the base and is hand-painted with a rooster and floral flourishes. There are no chips or cracks and no crazing, but the paint is worn in places. Please examine photos and do let me know if you need more. I'll be happy to oblige.
Thank you to http://majolicasociety.com/st-clement/ for the following information on St. Clément:
A pottery was established by Jacques Chambrette in St. Clément in 1758 producing traditional French faience. The factory was a branch of Chambrette’s Luneville pottery, but was managed by his son-in-law Charles Loyal, Paul Louis Cyfflé, and architect Richard Mique. By the beginning of the nineteenth century, both concerns had been acquired by Keller and Guérin. St. Clément began producing majolica during the 1860s and continued for some forty years.
St. Clément majolica is characterized by subtle shadings of colors. Majolica pieces include a series of figural jugs including a rooster and an absinthe pitcher in the form of a duck with folded wings. The pottery also produced a variety of vases as well as asparagus and artichoke plates and servers.
Majolica was commonly marked with an impressed ‘SAINT CLEMENT’ and may also include the letters ‘KG’ for Keller and Guérin.
Also, http://www.infofaience.com/en/stclement-hist/ has interesting information on this faience from France and http://www.infofaience.com/en/stclement-marks shows the marks and their dates.
Thank you for looking.
