Bird Scene & Nice Gold Trim Plate #5

This is a great plate made by Meissen in the mid to late 19th century. It is hand painted with a superb duck scene in the center including three ducks in a nice landscape surrounding. The rim has one of their nicer fancy gold trims to it. 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 and there are five single bugs / insects painted along the rim. 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. It is about 1.125 inches tall and 8.25 inches in diameter. It is in perfect condition. There are some manufacturing marks to the underside near the mark but it was made this way and is still a first choice piece!

Price is $499
