This is a beautifully detailed Royal Vienna Plate right out of a Vermont Estate Sale. The back is marked with the beehive (which is purple) and the word Austria underneath that. The picture we believe is a transfer with a little hand painting on top of it (her wrap under her breasts). We have seen this scene before and it has the marking under the picture: Chloris which is a Greek Goddess. The plate measures 8 1/2" and is in excellent shape with no cracks or chips, there is a lite scratch near the word Chloris visible in the pictures and a little wear on the very edge on the gold. The colors are vivid and the design is such that it makes a magnificent frame to the picture in the middle - one of the nicest we have come across. Fabulous piece of porcelain for your collection.
