Pair of Gilt enhanced Art Nouveau Bavarian porcelain cabinet display plates depicting cherubs or cupids and neo-classical maidens from the turn of last century in scenes that depict the maidens in dreamy almost trance like states or can we imagine possibly under the spells cast by a cherub or cupid as he works his magic. The plates each depicts a different detailed scene; one of a cupid with his bow and a beautiful maiden in a garden scene and the other with a winged cherub caressing a maiden who is seated on a garden bench. The border of each plate has nosegays of pink flowers & ornate gold designs dropped among the detailed embossed edging. The plates were produced by Zeh, Scherzer & Co. (Z. S. & Co.) of Rehau, Bavaria and they measure the perfect decor decoration size of 7 3/8 inches each in diameter. They are in excellent condition; no chips, cracks or hairlines with only very minor gold lose to the ornate trim (white spots on the plate are from the lighting used to photograph them). The only thing of note is a slight rough feel to the un-glazed foot rim; the area of the plate that contacts a table's surface. These are beautiful display pieces, each worthy of any porcelain, cherub or cupid collection! Incorporate them in the decor of almost any room in your home for a refined and romantic Art Nouveau touch! (L8630)
