The title sums it up pretty well. This gorgeous antique plate is from the 1870s. It measures 10 1/4" in diameter.
Every one of the month plates has its own charm. This polychrome version with the Florentine border is gorgeous and the most sought after and therefore the most expensive.
The July scene features a young boy and girl strolling on the beach with boats and the town in the background area. They both appear as they are strolling in slow motion - perhaps because it is, after all, a very hot mid-summer's day!
The plate is in excellent condition.
We have a September plate too (although it might have been sold by the time you read this).
