This magnificent Meißen Pomp Relief Plate is completely decorated with a vine - including grapes and leaves. The Decor is elevated in a Relief and while the leaves are hand painted, the actual vine and grapes are Gilt. It was made in the 18th Century (between 1730-1770). The beautiful pattern by the famous German Porcelain Manufactor was first introduced around 1730 - and due to its popularity it has been produced over centuries. This specific plate shows the early painting (with only the wine leaves in green and the vine and grapes in gold). It is marked on reverse with the famous crossed sabers mark (the specific design of this mark was used between 1723-1762)
Measures approximately 10" diameter and 1 1/2" tall.
Condition: It is in almost Mint Condition without any cracks, chips. Some of the original Gilt and Paint is a little bit worn. (PLEASE SEE PICTURES - Shadow in the images seen is not actual discoloration, but is a reflective distortion)
This is a very impressive, first quality center Plate with fantastic color and decoration.
