Antique French pair of round plates. Beautiful transfer design of flowers and leaves. Circa 1890.

Stamped with "Terre de Fer. H.B. & Cie. Andree. P.F." Terre de fer is a fine earthenware similar to porcelain.

Hippolyte Boulenger (1836-1892) took over his family's ceramics factory in Choisey-le-Roi 1863 and renamed it H. Boulenger & Cie. He transformed it into a company with an international reputation, exhibiting at the great world's fairs. In 1889 he opened a store in Paris. His sons succeeded him, and continued the business until it closed during the Great Depression in 1934.
