What a wonderful find, a set of seven matching pieces of beautifully done German Majolica! The plates have a slightly scalloped rim, with a creamy white background that has impressed lines through it. It's has three awesome mauve spider mums that are fully bloomed, three buds and three green leaves that are interspersed on the plate. A soft green hue surrounds the green leaves giving just that added touch. There are no cracks on this piece but one plate does have a small rim chip. 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 IS NORMAL AND ADDS CHARACTER TO EACH PIECE THE FACTORY WAS FOUNDED IN 1820 BY ISIDOR FAIST. FAIST SOLD THE POTTERY TO 'VILLEROY & BOCH" IN 1883. THEY KEPT THE FACTORY UNTIL 1912 AND SOLD IT TO THE BROTHERS MORITZ AND LEOPOLD MEYER WHO INTRODUCED THE "SMF SHIELD" MARK c. 1912-1928.
Backstamp: 'SMF' on a shield over 'SCHRAMBERG' over 'GERMANY'.
