An Victorian porcelain plate that features a deep cobalt blue scalloped rim that is decorated with gold filigree. We also find a gold filigree medallion decorating the white center. The mold is simple with a slight scalloping to the rim.
Marked with LS&S Carlsbad on the bottom which tells us that this is c. 1891. LS&S stands for Lazarus Strauss & Sons which was an import firm in New York City. They also had a factory in Austria that was owned by Marx and Oscar Gutherz. Most likely that is where this plate originated.
Measuring 8 1/4 inches in diameter we find just a tiny bit of wear to the gold but absolutely no damage to porcelain. Truly beautiful condition for its age.
