This beautiful pedestal cake plate depicts a light turquoise background with embossed patterns of birds, grapes and leaves. It has 2 beautiful birds eating grapes off the vines of fall colored leaves. The rim of the plate has embossed designs that look like icing on a cake! The pedestal base is decorated with raise green leaf and purple grape shapes tying it in nicely to the decorations on the top. The raised relief is much defined and makes the birds pop right off the plate. IT IS RARE TO FIND VINTAGE AND ANTIQUE MAJOLICA IN "LIKE NEW" CONDITION BECAUSE OF WEAR FROM USE AND AGE. TINY GLAZE FLAKES AND CRAZING IF PRESENT IS NORMAL AND ADDS CHARACTER TO EACH PIECE. This would make a wonderful addition to any majolica collection. This pattern is pictured in the book titled "Majolica" by Mark F. Moran.
