K & G Luneville made the unusual focal plate that inspired this one of a kind mosaic art.

A few years ago I purchased the center plate from an antique store in Eureka Springs. The plate had an large "audible crack" and plenty of chips. But the subject and execution intrigued me....It depicts a pair of French peirrot (clowns) jumping from a hot air balloon basket with the French skyline in the distance. Research showed that the plate was made to hang on the wall, that it was made between 1900 and 1920 and that it was made by Keller and Guerin or K & G Luneville, in France with a tin glaze that ranges from gray to aqua to pink to yellow...the perfect piece to tie all the other plates into the piece.

The headboard was painted with a textured gun-metal gray-brown
and I custom mixed the grout to further those tones.

The plates are tied together in theme by the colors: aqua, pink and orange,
and by the themes...vintage French signage, motifs and words
including Fleur De Lis patterns in gold
and chocolate script font on pink plates.

It is not a typical, commercially obvious piece because
I used a vintage footboard, turned upside down, to make it more versatile
(the legs would have been too short for a mosaic to show if
I had used it in the tradition orientation).

The piece can be hung on the wall as art,
hung above a bed as a headboard
or it can sit independently on a flat surface.
It is a traditional double or full size headboard
measuring 56.5 inches wide.

Currently, I have no plan for shipping this piece, but it is available locally
at The Back Porch
in Eureka Springs.

It is also within a 5 hour drive of St. Louis, Kansas City, Dallas, Little Rock, and Memphis.
