This pair of oval-form painted porcelain plaques were created in the early 19th century, and are based on Old Master paintings by the artist Alexandre-Francois Desportes (French, 1661-1743). Desportes was famed for his depictions of hunting scenes, and would accompany King Louis XIV on his hunts and record what he saw with lifelike accuracy.
The first plaque depicts a pack of hunting dogs attacking a horned stag in a woodland scene by a riverbed, whilst the second plaque depicts a pack of dogs catching a wild boar at the edge of a large, grassy clearing with a stream flowing by. Both paintings are rich with an autumnal palette of warm green, orange and brown tones, and are signed to the lower centre 'Chanez', being the artist who painted these impressive porcelain panels.
The plaques are both set into rectangular giltwood frames which exhibit intricate floral decorations. The reverse of the plaques are inscribed 'Signé: Chanez', and feature curved marks for Paris porcelain.
