This is a very nicely hand painted plate and just done a little different than your normal rose plates. The artist has painted two grouping of roses one on each side of the plate. She has used pink ones that have just enough white on the petals to giving it a nice realistic dimension. The white roses he has added a soft gray for depth and a deep yellow center. The rose leaves and stems are a deep wonderful green. She has added a few springs and thorns in a magenta color, which ties into the pink roses. The outer rims back ground around the floral arrangements are soft pastel hues of yellow and creams. The plate’s center is a soft buttery yellow and has a raised enamel gold ring separating it for the floral edge giving it that unique look. The artist has place her initial’s ‘A.A’ for A. Andriana by the golden ring. 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 any Limoges lover and would look beautiful displayed.
We have a matching plate that has the A. Andriana signatures; please see PLT286A
