19th C. French Creil et Montereau Transferware Rebus Puzzle Dessert Plates, S/6

About

A set of six French Rebus Puzzle dessert plates, transfer printed in black on a white earthenware body. When solved, the picture puzzle spells out a wise saying or maxim. From the early 1800s-early 1900s, most French homes had a set of Rebus dessert plates. Solving the puzzle provided entertainment and conversation to the table after a traditionally long meal. The solution to each puzzle is printed on the verso of the plate. A double band of French Blue lining borders a raised shell form embossed rim with the rebus in the center of the plate, circa 1841-1876, marked Creil et Montereau. Light signs of wear to the surface, some minor rough rims, structurally sound.
