Quite a few years ago I found a wonderful collection of well, French Collector Plates. I really like them and have yet to find a home for them. Maybe that will come one day soon, but until then I will share them each with you. They are from the collection "Women of the Century"
One of a limited series of collector plates celebrating special "Women of the
Century" commemorating 100 years of Paris Fashion. a tribute by FR. Ganeau in fine-art porcelain to the Ascendance of Western Women in the Hundred Years of Paris Fashion. This plate was first issued to coincide with the United Nation's Women's Year.
This is Daisy la Garconne la Femme Rebelle 1925
Daisy is a rebel, smoking and wearing her roaring 20's dress, arm garter and headband. She has seamed stocking and high stilettos on as she walks in long strides down the road with her scarf flying behind her.
Limited Edition Porcelain Collector's Plate

Back of plate features the D'arceau-Limoges Logo and Certificate of Authenticity
The back is hand initialed JL with the french story of this piece
Each seems to have such a personality.
I used this one recently while taking pictures of a recipe
