Dark Blue Historical Staffordshire Pottery La Grange Residence of the Marquis Lafayette Plate

Circa 1820s | Dark Blue Historical Scene: "La Grange the Residence of the Marquis Lafayette," with grapevine and floral borders. Lafayette lived there from 1802 until his death in 1834. The chateau, located in the commune of Courpalay, in the Seine-et-Marne département of France, dates from the 14th century. Its five circular towers were added in the 15th century, and the structure was further altered in the 17th century. The castle has been untouched since Lafayette's death. In 1955, a descendant of Lafayette, René de Chambrun, obtained possession of the chateau and discovered a large cache of documents in the attic. Today, the chateau is the property of the Josée and René de Chambrun Foundation, a charitable foundation charged with preserving the castle and its historical contents.
