Zoe H says...It is in her first book, Clare but it is literally a few lines which I hope Liza will not mind me paraphrasing as follows: made by Gabriel Fourmaintraux in Desvres, Pas de Calais from 1899 onwards. Unsophisticated and roughly painted but deserving of a place in the DH for their cheerful variety.
The red pieces at the back look interesting, quite different to the others. Do they have any marks?
Clare Harlow says...Yes, it is - where will I find Liza's article? Do you know when it might have been made, Zoe?
Clare Harlow says...Hi Jenny, yes the larger pieces are marked in black underneath with numbers and something that looks like "desire, France". It doesn't mean anything to me - does it to you?
jenny says...Wow! Zoe and me were looking at a collection of very similar pieces a few weeks ago. You are lucky to have this and it looks in such good condition, is any of it marked on the base?
