Here is a neat porcelain platter made by the porcelain factory in Ludwigsburg, now Germany, and bearing the appropriate factory mark in blue. A hard-to-find shape, it is twelve and a half by nine and a half inches. The wide rim is molded with basketwork, which was one of the standard motifs for European porcelain in the eighteenth century. In terms of condition, note that the purple glazed line on the edge of the rim is very worn; there are two small chips on the outer edge, some light stains, very minor wear to the decoration. I dabbed some paint on the chips to make them less noticeable for display, but that could easily be removed. The footrim has a chip, there is a hairline on the underside, several flaws from use in the kitchen—in short, this platter was actually used at the table instead of sitting on a shelf all the time. Some letters are impressed into the back. Against the back of the shelf it would form a nice backdrop to other porcelain pieces, and the flowers are well-detailed. The price reflects the condition. I’ve listed only a few of my Ludwigsburg pieces. Please ask for information about plates, cups and saucers, creamers, a sugar bowl, trays, etc.

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.
