This late nineteenth century glazed pottery wall plaque has been made in the style of Claude Michel (1738-1814), known as Clodion, a French sculptor in the Rococo style. The raised decoration is of a female satyr who is holding a bunch of grapes in her right hand, and a young male satyr, both seated on a rocky outcrop. It is glazed in a slightly irridescent turquoise glaze and marked with the name Clodion impressed into the front. It is 290 mm (11.5 inches) in diameter and is in good condition, but it does have some small chips to the rim.
