This plate has a beautiful brown glaze on the rim flower petal shapes are placed around the rim. In the center of this piece is a raised relief design of a putti (mischievous cherub) that is riding a lion and they appear to be flying. The pedestal has raised designs of leaves tied with a band in the middle. Plate has a two small rim chips, center design is not very defined, small chip on surface and hairlines on rim. IT IS RARE TO FIND VINTAGE AND ANTIQUE MAJOLICA IN "LIKE NEW" CONDITION BECAUSE OF WEAR FROM USE AND AGE. TINY GLAZE FLAKES AND CRAZING IF PRESENT IS NORMAL AND ADDS CHARACTER TO EACH PIECE. This would make a wonderful addition to any majolica collection.
