Antique French Majolica Asparagus Plate by Salins will make a splendid addition to your collection!  Depicting green and lavender-colored tips of white asparagus on a foliate leaf with a berry, the hand-painted colorations add a special visual touch, enriched by the final glaze.
The earthenware producer Salins was established in 1857 in Salins-les-Bains in Lorraine, near the border with Switzerland. The site of an old Capuchin convent with its surrounding premises was converted to a faience pottery. Salins was awarded a silver medal at the Paris Universal Expositon in 1889 and a gold medal at the Paris International Exhibition of Decorative Arts in 1912.  The bulk of Salins majolica production consisted of artichoke and asparagus plates, platters and cradles.
As of this writing, three examples are available, sold EACH.
