I believe this plate to be antique, but I am unable to confirm that. The plate is in colors of browns, greens and goldtones. The center features a minstrel with a mandolin. The back of the plate is marked with a logo and the name of the china company, but I am unable to make it out. I can only make out the word "Germany". The plate measures 9 3/4", and the back of the plate also has a hole for a wall hanger. It is in very good condition with only one area that shows any wear at all (see photos). There are no chips or cracks. Please email me with any questions.
