This wonderful framed faience charger depicting Romeo and Juliet dates from circa 1880, and comes from Creil and Montereau (B & Cie).  This finely painted work depicts the lovers in a wooded glen, with a bird of prey taking the life of a love bird at their feet, and features a border with stylized foliate ogival lappets.  It is believed to be a work by or after the German painter, Charles Fuchs (1803-1874). On verso is the black printed banner mark of Creil & Montereau, and on front it is signed "Ch Fuchs" in lower left.  Gesso and giltwood frame is original and features exceptional carved details.  Frame measures 27.5" tall/wide and 2" deep (69.9 by 69.9 by 5 cm), and the charger measures 19.25" (48.7 cm) across.  There are no visible cracks.  We have not examined the charger out of its frame.  It may have restorations including inpainting.
