The plate depicts a beautiful slight deeper than normal 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! It has a few rim flakes, and slight ware to the raised relief on the birds and grapes; please see pictures. 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.
This plate is pictured in the book titled "Majolica" by Mark F. Moran.
