Description

This is a most unusual plate, made at Nevers, France, which for a period during the French Revolution specialised in these revolutionary plates with a number of political "cartoons". Here a nobleman and a priest, both looking miserable, stand hand in hand and above them is the phrase "le malheur nous reunit" - misfortune reunites us.

The painting is simple and in the typical colours of Nevers, with the figures outlines in Manganese and a limited palette of brown, ochre green and blue. On the reverse is a painted green N.

Nevers was a long established pottery town which in the 16th century produced Italian style majolica of exceptional quality. By the end of the 18th century the town's reputation had declined but these plates have great charm and historical appeal, and are not common today, especially in good condition.
