Spring beckons! This gently scalloped cake plate with molded, pierced handles is made of bright white porcelain against which the leafy clusters of purple and maize-yellow wildflowers are really beautiful. But the most special feature of this plate is the unusual mold which takes the form of a scarf or handkerchief draped across the plate. Really lovely! I can just imagine bringing it out with a fattening, super-rich cheesecake with lots of berries as garnish - even better if served outside on the patio or porch!
Measures 8 3/4" and is in very good condition except for a small flake chip on the reverse (1/3") - please see last photo; the chip is at the 4 o'clock position. The flaw is not visible from the front and is reflected in the price. There is no wear to the floral image and minimal gold wear (ca. 25%). This unmarked piece is likely of German manufacturer, and probably pre-WWII. Thanks for taking time to look around my shop!
