At a mammoth fourteen and three-quarters inches across, this is undoubtedly one of the largest sizes of dish that the Frankenthal porcelain factory was able to make. It has a basketweave border molded into the rim, like the border found on much dinnerware of the time, and a selection of very fancy flowers painted onto the top surface. The flowers are vibrant and intricately painted. This large charger has no chips or cracks and no visible wear except that the gilding on the rim shows moderate loss from over-zealous scrubbing of the edge. I also have available another charger from the same service, same size, same style of flowers, which would make a matching pair with this one for a monumental display in the cabinet. This large size is exceptionally rare.

A warm welcome! Please consider all our offerings, and feel free to inquire about more information. We’re always buying, so let us know if you have early porcelain items to sell.
