Interesting French plate, transfer printed in black with an elderly gentleman kissing a beautiful lady. From a drawing by FG, probably for Charivari or some other satirical journal. Cf. page 92 in A-M Mariën-Dugardin, Faïences fines, Brussels 1975. The back text reads: Folies du coeur (madness of the heart) and further, in translation: the financier and the little darling, money means nothing, all that matters is love... Creil & Montereau, with marks for the Barbluet & Cie period (1877-84). Diameter "8/ 20,5 cm. Condition: fine.
