Antique French Songbird Pedestal Plate


Three little songbirds chirp to an anemone flower on this French footed pedestal plate. The rim and foot are trimmed with branches sprouting fresh spring leaves. Pretty on the table by itself, these footed plates are also perfectly charming to hold fruit on the kitchen counter, jewelry on the dressing table, or even keys in the entryway.

The back is stamped with the pattern name, "Oxford" and "H B & Co, Choisy" (see 8th photo) for the famous Hautin Boulenger & Cie manufacture in Choisy-le-Roi near Paris.


Dimensions: approx. 24 cm x 5 cm / 9.5 in x 2 in


These pieces wear their history like all vintage pieces which only adds to their story. This plate is in excellent condition with no chips or cracks. Slight darkening on the plate and crazing fro; normal use (see 3rd photo). The quality of the transfer is very good with no smudges.
