This is truly a beauty and very unusual to find a plaque this big and in such good condition. This piece is hand painted with delicate pink cherry blossoms on cranberry colored branches. He has added leaves in various shades of greens, and blues. He has placed his design on one side and has extended it down and halfway up the other side. He has used full bloomed flowers and some yet to emerge from the bud stage. He has accented the plate with gold cartouches and scroll work along a big portion of the rim and into the design. The background of soft sea foam green around the edge and a creamy white color complements the beautiful artwork. It appears that some of the criss cross lines in the cartouches have been worn but this does not take away from the beauty of this wonderful old piece. The plaque has three holes on the back allowing you to decide which way you want to display the flowers. There are no chips, hairlines or cracks; manufacturing anomalies do exist, the occasional tiny iron speck, dust 'bump' in the glaze, etc. This definitely would be an asset to any Limoges collection!
