Plate from the "Rousseau" Service

Félix-Joseph-Auguste Bracquemond (French, 1833–1914) Made by Lebeuf-Milliet et Cie, Creil and Montereau, France (1840–1875) Made for François-Eugène Rousseau (French, 1827–1891)

In addition to the “Rousseau” Service tableware with its combed blue borders and white backgrounds (2018-6-38), the service was also produced in a borderless version with differently shaped plates. However, both versions employed the same asymmetrical combination of animal, plant, and insect images copied from Japanese prints, typically a large image supported by two smaller ones. Like the original tableware, all decorations in this variant version were transfer printed and hand painted.
