Founded in 1794 in Tettau, Bavaria, the Royal Bayreuth firm is well known for it's superior quality porcelain items.
This wonderful scenic plate depicts the Arabian desert with Arab man riding his horse while tending a second pack-horse. In the background on the left is Arabian architecture and on the right a cluster of palm trees. The background is divided between a pastel blue sky and the tan desert sands. It is stamped in blue with the #2 mark, which is the most commonly found mark, circa late 1800's to World War II era. The plate measures 9" across and has a gold rim. There are no cracks, chips or repairs; some gold wear on the edge and several transfer separation marks appear in the sand area, which happened in the factory during production. Scarce scene.
