On the rim are different bugs and butterflies including Ladybugs and even flies and a gilt decoration. All decor is hand painted with fine detail. Similar plates were produced by the German Meissen factory in the 18th century. This Samson piece is a 1820-1840 masterpiece copy of these earlier pieces.
