The unknown artist has definitely made this piece of porcelain his canvas. He has shown the softness of the rose petals but also the harshness of the thorns bringing each to life on this plate. The plate has soft scalloped gold rim edges that cradle the beautiful design nestled on its front. He has used a light blue hue for one side of the background and a warm golden yellow on the other side. The artist has placed the spray of roses and rose buds in the lower center of the plate gradually letting them climb up the side. He has chosen a soft pink blended with white for the rose color. The center of the roses has been painted with dark pink enamel over the glaze making the roses look like it is actually growing out of the plate. Plate is in excellent condition. This would make a wonderful gift for some one special!!
