Lemon Majolica Trompe L'Oeil

Regular price €390

A magnificent French antique majolica wall plaque made by Perret Gentil in Menton. The colorful applique features a trompe l'oeil decor of lemons with pendant flowering and fruiting citrus branches. The glaze is amazing. This wall piece would be gorgeous in a kitchen to add a French country armosphere. 

The reverse has been stamped P.G for Perret-Gentil, circa 1900. His production is referenced in the book "Barbotines de la cote d'azur" by Maryse Bottero. 

Overall good antique condition with signs of ages: a splinter on one flower petal and small chips on leaves. There is a chip on a lemon, this is an original flaw. 
Please, take a close look at the pictures.
