Boucher Scene Plate

This is a really nice plate made by Meissen around the late 19th or early 20th century. It is hand painted with superb scene in the center of a couple in a landscape surrounding after Francois Boucher - a French painter (among other things) who worked in the Rococo style. This type of scene is often seen done in porcelain painting or even figurines. The gentleman is teaching the lady the flute. There is a sheep next to them and a basket filled with flowers. The quality of the scene is top notch. The edge of the well has a thin gold line going around and the rim is superbly reticulated wth a leaf and berry garland design that is highlighted with gilding. Even a gold ring around the foot ring of the plate and that is a sure sign of a top quality piece when Meissen did that. The plate is in perfect condition. It is marked with the under glaze blue crossed swords mark underneath as well as the usual impressed marks of this period that one expects to find. The piece is 0.875 inches tall and 9.25 inches in diameter. Please email me for more information or other pictures.

Price is $749
