An incomplete set of twelve enameled earthenware dinner plates and seventeen little bowls in the Les Etoiles, or "Little Stars" pattern from Faienceries Continental of France.  Each bowl and plate is hand decorated and under-glazed with blue and yellow atomic stars on a speckled brown and cream background.  Each dinner plate measures 10 1/8" across with a profile height of 1/2".  Each little bowl measures 5 5/8" across the rim with a profile height of 1 1/4".  The bottom of each piece is marked "Faienceries Continentiales Les Etoiles Hand Painted Underglazed Made in France" and a depiction of the Eiffel Tower.  The total count and condition of each size is as follows:

  • Large Dinner Plates:  12 Pieces.  All are in very condition with no flaws except very small areas of utensil marks that a hard to detect.
  • Small Bowls:  17 Pieces.  All are in near-mint condition, with no chips, cracks, or utensil marks.  Only two bowls have small areas of markings (one is no-show, the other is a tiny marking on the rim) that appear to be factory glaze marks and they can't be removed.  There is also one small 1" no-show area of discoloration to the underglaze just under the rim.
