Beautiful openwork earthenware Chevet plate with Moustier 5 polychrome hand painted decoration, entirely handcrafted and cut by hand by our master craftsmen. This openwork style forged Bourg-Joly Malicorne’s reputation and we are proud to continue producing our plates using the same traditional 18th century techniques.
The decorator paints freehand on the raw enamel, applying oxide-based colours with a brush, a technique dating back to the 18th century, which allows for the complete fusion of the decoration and the enamel. This traditional manufacturing method leads to slight variations in terms of colour and decoration. The entirely handmade nature of the work guarantees that each piece of earthenware is unique.
