Lovely Malicorne plate featuring the nautical life of days gone by on the French seaside. 

Frigate La Pomone, 1845.

The first serious test of the use of a propeller was carried out on the Pomone. Launched in 1845, the Pomone was modified in 1847 to be equipped with a steam engine without the exterior appearance of the frigate being significantly modified.

Since 1924, The Faïencerie d’Art de Malicorne has been continuing the tradition of local Malicorne craftsmen and producing fine decorative pottery in the Malicorne style. Each piece of Malicorne pottery is created by hand from preparing the clay, making the molds including the openwork which are carried out by hand using traditional tools to the hand painted designs which pay tribute to the decorative works of the Rouen and Nevers schools. Each piece of Malicorne pottery created by The Faïencerie d’Art de Malicorne is signed by the pottery guaranteeing the piece’s authenticity.

Hand crafted and hand painted in France. 

Size: 10 inch
