1900 Paul Déroulède French Nationalist Vintage Plate by Sarreguemines
circa 1900 Paul Déroulède French Nationalist Plate by Sarreguemines #615:
Paul Déroulède (1846-1914) was a militant French nationalist, author, poet, writer, and famous politician born in Paris. This 8 inch diameter beautiful sepia toned antique plate has a smooth edge, and was made by the famous Sarreguemines Pottery, Porcelain & Glass firm, which began its work in 1874.
The plate encompasses a memorial to his public life. It has transferware scenes of a photographic portrait of Paul Déroulède in black and white transfer by famou French photographer Pierre Lanith Petit (aka Pierre Lamy Petit) in the center. On edges it has 4 scenes: a bust of the French Republic PRO PATRIA; Paul fighting the Prussian army at the 1870 Battle of Montbéliard; a bugle, 2 flags, a French army helmet, and a book which reads "Les Chants Du Solday" ("The Songs of the Soldiers") a 1872 19th c French publication; and lastly Paul Deroulede in his 1899 jail cell, when he was jailed for his militant activity.
Found in Devon, England, a beautiful piece. Condition: 2 hairline cracks and minor edge wear, but displays beautifully and is fully intact and strong, as seen in photos. (See last photo for edge wear) It was made in the early 20th century.
Size: 8 inches diameter, with holes for hanging ribbon, see photos.
