Stunning, hand applied, gold detailing on this antique plate by Royal Nippon with hand painted roses and asters.
These antique Royal Nippon plates are extremely difficult to come by and is dated prior to 1891.
The gently scalloped edges have been trimmed in gold, by hand, with more fine gold detailing spilling over onto the cobalt areas and finally, the center of this antique porcelain plate has been lavishly detailed with even more gold.
The plump roses are pink with the asters being purple, all lovingly hand painted by a highly skilled artists. Tiny blue, forget me not flowers are tucked in beside the larger asters and roses.
Raised enamel beads in white have been applied to the green swirls near the edge of the Nippon plate.
Positively no cracks, chips or repairs. Completely original. Unmarked, as are most Royal Nippon pieces.
Measures 8 1/2" across.
