This is a wonderful Ginori plate that is hand painted & signed by one of their stable of artists - P. Brogi. I am actually listing 3 sea life plates from my collection that were all painted by the same artist. This beauty shows oysters on the bed of the ocean with lovely, wavering sea fernery in the background. The colors are beautiful on this plate and an added special touch is the very delicate gold, very beautiful & extensive scroll work around the border of the plate. The effect is quite beautiful - almost ethereal.
The plate measures 8 5/8" in diameter.
It is in excellent condition with no cracks or hairlines - there is a chip on the bottom inner part of the rim where it sits; completely unnoticeable. .
It is marked with Ginori under and overglaze marks and numbered 62. Late 1800's, very early 1900's.
I can easily combine shipping on these plates if so desired.
