Early Floral Plate w/Red Wheel Mark

This is a superb and very early plate made by Hoechst around 1760. It is hand painted with a nice floral arrangement in the center in their typical very early style and has some smaller flowers on the rim as well as some tiny single leaves and a flower blossom to cover up small firing flaws. Nice relief decoration to the rim as well and a gold trim to the edge which is mostly worn away. The plate is in good condition with the already mentioned wear to the gilding as well as a flat rim chip that does not take away from the piece at all. It displays perfectly! The plate is 1.5 inches tall so fairly deep and likely a soup plate and has a diameter of 9.875 inches. It is marked underneath with the red wheel mark as well as an incised letter C with a number 5 (I think) behind it. Please email me for more information or other pictures.

Price is $299
