Hand painted gold gilt always looks so lavish over cobalt blue!
Three cartouches and a central pattern are all filled with with "blumen" in the German style of adding springs of alpine flowers to a design. This plate comes from a marvelous era when beautiful and colorful(!) floral designs were all the rage in Germany and England. Major department stores and jewelers were importing these for their shops at this time. The more gilding, the more popular the pieces were. The gilding is really stunning on this charmer, don't you think? It really reminds us of the German hand painted porcelains we feature in our shop.
This green backstamp dates this pieces to between 1934 and 1939.
The pattern name is "Aristocrat" and its Aynsley pattern number is 7700. Hard to find these days, but the fun is in the searching, isn't it?
No chips, hairlines or cracks.
