Palissy Majolica Plate with Sculpted Sea Crab in Sand

The Catch of the Day! This is a fabulous piece of Palissy Majolica featuring a ruby red sculptured crab sitting amidst his own familiar habitat of sand, mussels, and other sea creatures. The rich earth tone colors of green, yellow, brown and the blue of the mussels, help transform this three-dimensional piece into a vivid and incredible life-like beach scene. Modeled after the ground breaking techniques founded by craftsman Bernard Palissy, our crab charger is simply amazing.

Our Palissy Majolica Crab Charger is 13 inches in diameter, 3 inches in height (including the crab), and weighs 4 pounds, 9.4 ounces. It is not marked on the underside but is clearly in the style of Palissy Majolica produced in the mid 1800's. The underside does have four holes by which it can be suitably and securely hung. With the exception of some minor glaze loss to one of the tips of one of the shells, (shown in the picture) this piece is otherwise in excellent condition with no repairs or additional chips or flakes.
