Early antique RS Prussia cake plate with gorgeous raised, white enamel detailing, gold scrolls and in the difficult to acquire burgundy color, mold OM38 with decor OT5.
The deep, rich burgundy scrolling outside and inside borders have been traced in fine, gold detailing. The flowing scrolls of burgundy maroon are bold and eye catching, especially with that beautiful, soft pink interior background.
Central decor is of pastel colored pink, white and burgundy pink wild roses or dogwood flowers with finely detailed foliage and green leaves scattered throughout.
The most impressive thing about this antique RS Prussia porcelain plate is all the lovely white, raised enamel highlighting that the artist has painstakingly applied by hand. I have included pictures of this handiwork and it is quite beautiful. The white enamel detailing really stands out against that burgundy maroon border and the pale pink background in the center.
Absolutely free of chips, cracks and hairlines. This antique plate looks as if it has never been used. All of the enamel is present and is not worn off.
Measures 11" across.
