This is a very lovely plate possibly used as an under plate at one time. It is more like a shallow bowl than a plate. It is a deep raspberry color on a bright white background and is decorated with gold flowers and garlands. The rim and center of the plate is decorated with gold gilt. There is raised porcelain or embossing along the rim which is gilded.
There is a manufacturer's mark on the back of the plate that looks like an F with a stylized A through it. We have not been able to identify the maker. It is also stamped Décoré Main which means that the plate was hand decorated with decals and or transfers.
The plate measures approximately 8 ½" in diameter and 1 ¼" in depth.
The plate is in good condition. There are no chips, cracks or crazing.

Thanks for visiting our shop. Due to a devastating house fire we are going to be a little slow getting orders shipped.
