While the Hewitt sisters rarely bought objects that were even close to contemporary, this plate is an exception. Joseph-Théodore Deck, who became director of Sèvres in 1887, was an innovator in ceramics. His glazes produced strong colors and a variety of effects, including the appearance of champlevé enamel in this plate.
