MELON EATERS Scene Cabinet Plate 10.5 Inches circa 1918

Murillo's Melon Eater's scene 10 1/2 inch cabinet plate with Dresden style flowers in a gilded magenta border by the Porcelain Factory of Mitterteich is being offered for your consideration. Bartolome' Murillo painted the original, 'Melon Eater's' series from which this scene is taken, in 1650. Several of his other depictions of children eating melons have graced famous Prussian porcelain and have become some of the most sought after display plates in the world. This wonderful cabinet plate is in near mint condition with only some minor gilding lose to the center plate scroll work. The plate is marked on the back with a capital M surrounded by flowers and underneath it bears Mitterteich Bavaria in gold lettering and under that a stamp for Made in Germany. This large display plate was produced between 1918-1923. Dresden type flowers grace the magenta border that fades to rose and then to off-white with a thin gold trim edge and then ladder and gold scroll border decorations. A fabulous dream find and one worthy of the most discriminating collection! (1147-14)
