DescriptionJames Monroe: Vieux Paris Porcelain Portrait Plate. 9" plate with stipple engraved transfer portrait captioned "James Monroe President of the United States", surrounded by two concentric gold bands. Light wear to the transfer. The same image was also used on a demi-tasse cup & saucer. Produced at the close of the War of 1812, dating to 1815-1816, during Monroe's presidency. Very little was produced for Monroe, making this a special piece. No signs of damage, repair or restoration. We have a "good feeling" about this one!
