French Vintage Kitsch St. Amand Faience Majolica Charger / Large serving dish

This is a lovely French kitsch charger or large serving dish, made by St. Amand made in French Faience Or Majolica . It dates to between 1908-1932 and is in very good condition.
The design of this charger features a hand painted Rooster cockerel in the centre surrounded by greenery. The style of this hand painted decoration is definitely that of the late Art Nouveau or Arts and Crafts era.
The outside rim of the charger is also decorated. This is done in a rather organic Art Nouveau Pattern pattern of clover leaves, and hearts, with a light greyish blue colour fading into the white of the porcelain.

The back of the charger does bear a Saint St Amand Back stamp. This features a swan on water with 'St AMAND' written below it. This is then surrounded by a circular frame with the words 'NOUVELLES USINES CERAMIQUES DU NORD' written within the frame. (Please see the thumbnail images below the main image for closer views of this mark).
This backstamp dates it and can be found by researching the web.

The condition of the charger is very good however it does appear that at some point it was put in a wall hung plate rest which has worn some very slight areas of the rim to expose the faience beneath the glaze. There are also a few manufacturing flaws common with this type of porcelain in the glaze. Please see the photos for closer views of these.

This charger measures approximately 11 inches in diameter by 2 inches deep.
