This is a small 19th century majolica plate with three half-open turquoise fans, each bearing turquoise, blue and green butterflies and magenta tassels. All is on a ground of two-tone speckled turquoise with magenta flowers and turquoise leaves. Plate is edged in dark gray.

Measures 7 ½” in diameter x 5/8” high. There are three kiln stilt marks very close to edges of underside; table ring is glazed. There is no maker’s mark on the plate except for the large incised numbers, 6 and 196, on underside which almost certainly mean that it’s Continental.

There is a shallow 1/8" long chip to the glaze on the gray border and glaze wear to three of the antennae-tips on the butterflies. The fans show a bit of crazing. (All shown in photos.) White areas are from the camera flash.

Even with its small issues, the plate is in great condition for antique majolica. It's very lovely, and will display wonderfully.
