Really Fun Imari Plate

This is a really fun plate made by Meissen in the 19th century. If you just looked at it in terms of the design you'd say it is early 18th century but this is a later version. I ahve not seen another like it before and really like the pattern! Definitely an Imari influence but also some Kakiemon I think. Either way a really cool piece! The rim has a green trim to it with tiny black dots and purple, yellow and orange flowers and elaves. A double blue line under that. The center of the plate has a blue ring with some nice fine gilding to that and flowers growing out of the ring. Some color scheme as the rim. A neat orange and puce pattern in the very center. Kind of looks like a table a bit. Even the underside has a blue trim to it and some orange flowers and bugs. Might have been made as a replacement piece to an earlier 18th century version!? It is defintely one of my new favorite pieces! The plate is in perfect condition. It is marked with the under glaze blue crossed swords mark (first choice) underneath as well as some impressed numbers as shown. The plate is 8.625 inches in diameter and 1 inch tall. Please email me for more information or other pictures.
