A antique porcelain cake plate that features a water lily decoration. The lilies are in a two wreath design around the under rim and center. The Victorian mold design shows a deeply scalloped rim with gold foil decorating the edge.
Hallmarked with the Rosenthal mark, Malmaison, and Water Lily tell us that this was manufactured in the Selb Bavaria factory c. 1901.
Measuring a very large 12 inches from handle to handle we find just slight wear to the gold. All in all this is in beautiful antique condition.
