This magnificent Large Meissen Plate, its center is decorated with a hand painted picture of a Target and two rifles, was made between in 1895. The beautiful handpainted picture is surrounded by two Cobalt Blue bands. In between these two bands is the following Inscription: "Priv. Scheibenschützen. Meissen, den 13. Mai 1895." It means: "Private Target shooters - Meissen the 1th of May 1895". Plates like this were won during Shooting competitions back in the day in Germany. This specific Plate is very rare, since it contains the name of the city it was made on the front.
Measures approximately 9 1/2" diameter and 1 1/2" tall.
Condition: It is in almost Mint Condition without any cracks or chips. The only little bit of wear is on the paint of the outside rim. It is seldom to find a piece of this age in next to perfect condition. (PLEASE SEE PICTURES - Shadow in the images seen is not actual discoloration, but is a reflective distortion)
This is a very impressive, first quality Collectors Plate with fantastic color and decoration.
