Antique Majolica Duck Plate

Antique Majolica Duck Plate

$125.00

From one of France's faience and majolica studios renowned for their elegantly distinctive wares, we are pleased to present this gorgeous Antique Majolica Duck Plate.

Manufactured by the venerable H. Boulenger & Cie of Choisy-le-Roi, this plate features a regal mallard duck perched at the edge of a tranquil pond along with funny frog making its quick escape into the water. Artfully glazed and highly decorative, this would be considered a "cabinet plate", meaning that it was designed to be displayed in a cabinet or hung on the wall and not used for any sort of food service.

The gently scalloped edge of the plate and the expertly hand-painted design lends this beautiful plate a certain timeless appeal. It is sure to bring its wondrous charm wherever it is displayed.


Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. Circa 1910. In good antique condition with slight crazing consistent with age. 8 3/4".

Learn more about H. Boulenger & Cie

Founded in 1804 in the southeastern Parisian suburb of Choisy-le-Roi, H. Boulenger & Cie took its name from one of its owners, Hippolyte Boulenger. It was under his direction that the company developed an international reputation and exhibited at the great world's fairs. 

In 1889, Hippolyte opened a boutique in Paris, selling their beautiful faience and majolica to an appreciative public. Shortly thereafter, Hippolyte was succeeded by his two sons and in 1920, the firm bought the competing ceramic house, Manufacture de Montereau, becoming Hippolyte Boulanger-Creil-Montereau. The Choisy factory was eventually shuttered in 1934, and the Montereau factory closed its doors in 1955.
