Paris Style Fruit Scene Plate

This is a great plate made by Meissen in the early to mid 19th century. Unusual in decoration as it looks more in the Paris / French style but then again France was the country that the fashion followed for quite a long time. The piece is hand painted with a large fruit scene in the center including a pear and three plums as well as some red currants including their leaves. There are some bugs and one bird around the fruit scene with the rim having a heavily gilded design to it with panels of bugs, birds and more fruit / berries. It's a really nice looking plate but just from the look of it I would not place it in Germany but in France like I said before. It looks stunning on display! The plate is marked with the under glaze blue crossed swords mark underneath as well as the usual impressed numbers and a painter's mark so there is zero doubt about it being a Meissen piece. It is about 1.125 inches tall and 8.375 inches in diameter. It is in great condition with a very minor touch of wear. Please email me for more information or other pictures.

Price is $599
