This ceramic wall plaque was produced in France at the Manufacture Nationale de Sevres in 1928. The artist is Adrian August Leduc. His painted signature is on the back of the plaque as well as an impressed mark. It measures 11 ¼ inches in diameter and is 1 ½ inches deep. The design is abstract and high relief. There are rows of white circles with gray accents. There is wonderful texture to the surface. You can interpret them as bubbles, cotton balls, ova, ice or whatever comes to your mind. The border has bands of charcoal gray that are intentionally crackled and mottled. The border frames the plaque with contrast and additional interest. The surface has a shiny glaze, slightly crazed, which is pleasing to the eye. It is complete with a custom made metal frame and hanger made of brass or bronze. It is well suited to hold the weight of this piece. When you concentrate on the elements of its design, it grows on you.
