This lovely RS Germany pink and white floral two handled plate depicts beautiful life-like pink, white, and pale yellow Cosmos flowers as they bend gracefully up the side and across the top of the plate. The large delicate blossoms are backed by a teal blue background with gold medallions. The rim of the plate is ringed with a gold laurel leaf motif.
This RS (for Reinhold Schlegelmilch) Germany pierced handle plate measures 9-1/2 inches in diameter, 9-3/4 across the handles.
The backstamp is the blue underglaze RS Germany Wreath and Star, dating the plate to between 1914 and 1945.
There is wear in the design, especially in the gold laurel wreath around the rim. The design is slightly off center.
