This is a wonderful majolica plate featuring a nice orange salmon colored background and a wonderful dandelion flower encompassing most of the plate. The leaves are a deep green at the center and blend into the background color at the tips. The flower is a bright refreshing yellow. The raised relief swirls at the base of the flower is a beautiful touch. There is also a few plate rubs on the higher portions of raised relief , please see pictures. This design is shown in the "Majolica American & European Wares" by Jeffrey Snyder & Leslie Bockol page 155. 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
What a wonderful addition to a majolica collection, or an appreciated gift! We have two similar turquoise plates and a smaller orange plate with this design in the store.
