Lovely antique French faience 2pc 8 3/8" cabinet plate pair, die stamped Creil marks with vivid yellow borders and figural scene centers entitled "Mars" & "Avriel"! One of three yellow bordered sets that we're adding this week, another pair and a larger set of four and they all look lovely displayed together. This set with just die stamped or impressed marks on the backs that read "Creil No.12", likely for Alphonse Legros though references also attribute them to Legros & d'Ainsy. Each plate with text at lower left of the scenes, one reads "Mars" and the other "Avriel". A lovely pair and wonderful figural scenes!
Very good condition. Some slight discolorations and surface scratching, also some crazing to the glaze. There are a few small rim chips visible from the back but nothing really to detract from their overall visual & decorative appeal. See pictures for all measurements.
