Braunsdorf Strawberry Plate

This is an amazing plate plate made by Meissen in the 19th century. If you collect strawberry decorated items this is the holy grail in that department! It is a plate decorated by Professor Julius Eduard Braunsdorf who worked at Meissen from 1858 until 1906 and is famous for the most beautiful and real looking flowers at Meissen if not anywhere! Prof. Braunsdorf studied at the Art Academie in Dresden before coming to Meissen and is amoung the most important floral painters ever. This plate is a perfect example of his work and these types of plates are very very rare and hard to find. The entire plate is handpainted with a chocolate / dark brown ground with a strawberry painted in the center that has leaves, blossoms and fruit and these look real enough to want to grab and eat them. The nicely shaped rim has a strawberry bud, a blossom in full bloom and a ripe strawberry on it as well as a nice gold trim to the edge. The plate is in perfect condition with the tiniest of wear to the gilding, basically none at all. It is marked with underglaze blue crossed swords mark underneath as well as an impressed 3. This beauty is 1.125 inches tall and 8.25 inches in diameter. Please email me for more information or other pictures.
