2nd Choice Reticulated Plate

This is a really nice plate made by Meissen in the later 19th century. The plate has a nicely reticulated rim to it with four sections of flowers with leaves and a pink ribbon rim and four panels of reticulation with tiny raised flowers at the intersections. The edge has a reticulated design to it of little arches with more of the raised flowers. Nice gold trim highlights. The center of the plate just has a simple yet elegant floral arrangement to it as well as two single small flowers. It's a really pretty plate! The plate is in perfect condition but was deemed a second choice piece because of a smear of green paint on the leaf of the rose and a in the making chip to the very edge which was glazed and gilded over. Neither takes away from the piece at all and it looks amazing! It is marked with the under glaze blue crossed swords mark with two cuts across it as shown and the usual impressed marks and a paitner's number. The plate is 1.125 inches tall and 9.375 inches in diameter. I rarely buy second choice pieces but sometimes you come across one that is just too nice to pass up - so here it is :) Please email me for more information or other pictures.

Price is $249
