The plate depicts a beautiful 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! There are a few flakes on the rim but no chips or cracks and the glaze looks great! 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. See PLT1157 of a companion plate, also check out our other matching pieces listed. If you search on Turquoise it should bring these up. This plate is pictured in the book titled "Majolica" by Mark F. Moran.
