Under Glaze Colors Bremen Scene Plate

This is a rare and really nice Art Nouveau / Jugendstil porcelain wall plate / plaque made by Meissen around 1900. Meissen missed the train a bit in terms of Art Nouveau / Jugendstil and thus their pieces are much harder to find than those of other makers of this period. I have never seen this plate before nor could I find another one of this exact scene. It is hand painted with a scne of the Rathaus (or as my daughter would call it - rat house) - city hall with the Roland sculpture in the front as well as lots of people walking in front. Thin gold band around the scene and very lightly impressed BREMEN underneath on the white rim. The superb scene covering the entire center which looks stunning and they used their famous under glaze Scharffeuerfarben which were not used often but are more common to this period and loook amazing! i This plate is in perfect condition! It is 1 inch tall and 9.875 inches in diameter so a very nice size. It is marked underneath with the under glaze blue crossed swords (first choice) as well as the usual impressed numbers as shown. A stunning piece that is quite rare! Please email me for more information or other pictures.

Price is $1499
