Bird Scene & Nice Gold Trim Plate #3

This is a great plate made by Meissen in the mid to late 19th century. It is hand painted with a superb chicken scene in the center including a big rooster and two hens in a landscape surrounding. The rim has one of their nicer fancy gold trims to it and this plate here also has four single bugs / insects painted on the rim. This type of gold trim is more common on cobalt ground pieces they made. The edge is a bit wavy rather than just plain round which adds to the piece. It looks stunning on display! The plate is marked with the under glaze blue crossed swords mark underneath as well as the usual impressed numbers. Old Sotheby's NY sticker that I decided to leave be but could easily be removed! It is about 1.125 inches tall and 8.25 inches in diameter. It is in perfect conditio. I have a few of these plates so if anyone is interested in a pair or more just let me know! Please email me for more information or other pictures.

Price is $499
