Keller & Guerin have depicted the true beauty of the wonderful rose by making it the whole focal point of this plate. They have used different hues of pinks to form the petals giving each one a three dimensional look. They have added leaves of greens, with a touch of white outlines around these huge blossoms. The roses have been surrounded by a background of blue gray that soften to a cream color as it recedes away for the flower. The gray rim of this piece is very unique! It gives the impression of a leaves layered on top of each other that encloses the precious roses protecting them from harm. The colors are bright and strong and the glaze is shiny and heavy. The piece has a few discolorations, please see pictures. There are no cracks, chips, or repairs. 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.
