SALE Bavarian Signed Rose Charger or Large Cabinet Plate!!!
Oh my goodness.....if you don't have this charger, you will probably want to add it to your collection.....When I spotted it from a distance, I just figured it was Limoges because of the rich color and design....It isn't but it's still a wonderful piece. It has a crown, and the artist signed PM, and below says Bavaria....
This wonderful charger, which I have also seen called a Cabinet Plate, has two huge pink roses plus another pink rosebud, and a beautiful yellow rose with pink tips....These definitely are the old fashioned roses rather than hybrids...I can just almost smell the wonderful rose scent!
Decorative in design, at one time there probably was gold gilting all the way around the plate. Although some has worn through these many years, there are still many areas that still retain their gold. There's one place along the rim where the gold has flaked off in just a tiny little place....and there's another place you see on the tip of one of the pink roses.....This is NOT a chip or a flake...looks to just be a skip in the paint or glaze, as made. The edges have almost a ruffled appearance with some floral and vine design as well.
This wonderful charger has a deep well, and if you notice on the backside, the mark is inside another circle...which makes it almost 3 dimensional. Condition is not perfect, but still quite excellent! You may be able to see a couple of spider veins on the back...perhaps where crazing is beginning....certainly not a crack that would hinder the value of the charger, but rather "aging with grace."
I will pack this wonderful piece with the utmost care. My price reflects the imperfections, but I know these are quite valuable in their own right! I really don't think you'll be disappointed.
Because of the size of this plate, it will probably have to go in a larger box, so bear that in mind with the shipping cost....If less, I will be happy to refund any overpayment when it's mailed, as this is an estimate. I'm guessing Fedex might be less than USPS for the size....but will check both methods of shipping to save you. Thanks so much for shopping at The Loft on Ruby Lane, and God Bless You! May we honor Him in all we say and do!
