Bird Scene & Nice Gold Trim Plate #9

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 rooster and two hens 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. 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. An old Sotheby's sticker which I chose not to remove but could easily be done if one wishes to do so. It is about 1.125 inches tall and 8.25 inches in diameter. It is in perfect condition. There is a stray gold line to the underside as shown. Please email me for more information or other pictures.

Price is $499
