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

Steamship Sirius, 1838.

British ship launched in Cork (Ireland) in 1837, the Sirius is the first mixed propulsion transatlantic to cross the Atlantic on April 22, 1838 after 18 days of navigation.
This epic crossing because all the combustible material including the masts had to be burnt due to the lack of coal inspired Jules Verne for his novel Around the World in Eighty Days.

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.
