This is a porcelain plate with embossed raised handles and leaves. It is handpainted in a design of grey and pink leaves with small yellow and blue flowers. The plate is 9 5/8" across. There is a faded blue circle backstamp that reads "Marx & Gutherz Carlsbad." There is also a hand painted date in red "1975 94." The plate is in very good condition. There are no chips or cracks, but there are a few utensil marks. I thought the 1975 indicated the year it was painted, but the blue circle mark means the plate was manufactured in the 1890s.
