Francophiles!  This is the cutest set of blue and white 8" plates!  Made by Gien, each features a different scene and wise saying in French on the back.  Five plates, pristine estate condition.  There is no number 3.  They are hallmarked "Musee de la Faiencerie de Gien." 

No. 1:  Le travail est la source... (Work is the source of all wealth)

No. 2:  La verite comme... (The truth like oil rises above all)

No. 4: Si tu veux un remede... (If you want a cure for drunkenness, look at the drunkard)

No. 5:  Apres la soupe un verre... (After the soup, a glass of wine removes a crown (coin/payment) from the the doctor's pocket)

No. 6:  Garde toi tant que... (Beware as long as you live of judging people on their face (looks).

Merci to my mother-in-law, Marthe, for these translations!
