This is a beautiful cake plate done in the 'mixtion method' china painting which is a combination of hand decorated and hand painted artwork. It has a background of a soft sea foam green on the outer rim that blends into a creamy white center. Delicate white poppies with pink accents on the petals and golden yellow centers are the flora used for the main decorations. The flowers have had raised white enamel and gold outlines applied giving them a three dimensional look. The flowers and buds are mixed with soft wispy green and golden brown leaves and stems. The two opened handles and rim have been accented with gold gilding completing this piece beautifully. There are no chips, hairlines or cracks; manufacturing anomalies do exist, the occasional tiny iron speck, dust 'bump' in the glaze, etc. With the winter months ahead this will definitely put a little spring into a room!!
