What a wonderfully antique cabinet plate. Imagine where it has been all these years! This plate has been completely hand-painted by a very talented Mid-19th Century master porcelain artist. The artist has depicted beautiful strawberry and blackberry plants showing with beautiful ripen fruit. He has made them look so realist you want to pluck them off their stems. He has added big green leaves adding contrast to the berries and the background. He has used a blue, amber and ivory background colors for the strawberries and a soft purple and ivory for the blackberry plate. He has completed these pieces with a decorative gold coin boarder. There is slight gold wear to the rims, please see pictures. There are no chips, hairlines or cracks; manufacturing anomalies do exist, the occasional tiny iron speck, dust 'bump' in the glaze, etc.
Backstamp: Mark 33 over-glaze in script slanted with Limoges in written script and FRANCE printed
