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!
