Plate with a philhellenic theme

A porcelain plate with a philhellenic theme from the Montereau factory in France. Early 19th century. It features a scene from the 1821 Revolution, inspired by a lithograph of Karl Loeillot, entitled “Miaoulis captures a Turkish ship”. Miaoulis was one of the best known figures of 1821, after Botsaris and Kanaris, who were perhaps the most famous and popular Greek fighters internationally.
