Royal Kakiemon Plate

This is a very rare porcelain plate made by Meissen in 1910. It is hand painted with the superb Kakiemon pattern including a Fabeltier after Loewenfinck ( Löwenfinck) and an eagle plus some small flowers scattered throughout. The best part and what truly makes it rare is the prince's crown over a rose flower on the rim and the extra prince's mark with his initials underneath. The plate was made for the nobility of the house of Lippe - a family of nobility that dates back to the 13th century. The prince of Lippe belonged to the Princes of the German Empire until 1918. The large rose is part of their armorial and the crown is that of a prince. Still not sure which one in the house the initials underneath belonged to. So this plate was commissioned at the very end of their reign. The plate has a nicely reticulated rim with a relief design around the armorial. This plate is in perfect condition with two tiny flaws on the rim which I am not sure if they are from the making or from one of those nasty old plate hangers. It is 1.125 inches tall and 8.25 inches in diameter. It is marked underneath with the under glaze blue crossed swords as well as the usual impressed numbers, the 200 year anniversary mark as well as the royal ownership mark underneath.
