What a beautiful example of workmanship! The mold has a slightly scalloped edge that is trimmed in gold. It also has a slight curvature on the rim giving it a slight bowl / dish effect. Around the rim of this piece the artist has painted a wonderful deep cobalt blue mimicking the shape of the rim. The center of the plate has a radiant white background that is separated from the cobalt by a gold outline. The blue gently bleeds into the white center slightly. On the white background the artist has placed vibrant deep orange and gold flowers and buds that he has accented with yet more gold. A few of the petals on the stems have been painted with the cobalt blue tying the decoration together beautifully. There are no chips, hairlines or cracks; manufacturing anomalies do exist, the occasional tiny iron speck, dust 'bump' in the glaze, etc. This is a must have for that cabinet plate collector!!!
