Large Scenic Charger

This is a charger / huge plate or serving platter made by Meissen in the late 18th century or early 19th century. The piece is hand painted with a large puce and black scene in the center with some gold highlights. It is of a couple near a bench in the woods with a building in the background. The rest of the plate is decorated with some handpainted puce floral arrangements with gold highlights as well as smaller puce and gold flowers. Gold trim to the edge. The platter is marked with the underglaze blue crossed swords mark underneath with the Roman numeral II under that used in the late 18th and early 19th century. It also has the usual impressed numbers underneath as shown. The dish is rather large being 2.125 inches tall and about 15.5 inches in diameter. It is in superb condition with a few spots in the white glaze area that were ground down to hide flaws from firing. A normal thing that they did on these larger pieces around this time. There is still one brown firing spot on the underside as shown. About as nice as anyone can hope for and just plain huge! It does come with a very sturdy plate hanger which I would normally remove but this one is solid and should work very well. You'd need metal cutters to get it off which I do have so if the buyer want them off I can certainly do that. Please email me for more information or other pictures.

Price is $849
