Antique Royal Vienna Beehive Plate Art Deco Style Jewelled Circa 1864
Offered for sale is this fabulous, Imperial and Royal Porcelain Vienna plate featuring a 1.5 inch wide border embellished with blue enamel "jewels" and a gold beaded, design meticulously hand decorated over a radiant gold, backdrop. The embossed, gold medallion centerpiece is elegantly framed with a smaller border mirroring the larger and is followed by a bright orange and gold floral art nouveau, border. The plate measures 9 inches and reversed, under the glaze, is a blue, Imperial and Royal Porcelain Manufactory Vienna hallmark used between 1860 and 1864.
This antique, Austrian beauty is in excellent condition with the exception of a tiny chip on the back of the rim which has been professional and lovingly, restored. As you can see from the photos, the small blemish does not show on the front...nor take away anything from this spectacular and unique, work-of-art.
Thank you for visiting my gallery. I do so appreciate it.
