This is a beautiful set of 6 matching 8" R. S. Germany plates. Each plate has one large pink rose and several slightly smaller roses on green stems with gray green leaves. The colors in this plate vary from subtle shades of medium brown to creamy beige around the rim. The center has muted shades of green leaves against a white background. There are subtle shadings of gray in the leaves. The rim of the plate has bold gilding and there is a design of gold leaves around the inside rim
They date to circa 1900.
Each plate is marked with the manufacturer's mark (Reinhold Schlegelmilch), R. S. Germany inside a laurel wreath that has a star above it.
The plates are all in good condition. There are no chips, cracks or crazing. There is, however, wear on the gold gilding around the rims, which is expected with plates of this age.
