This is a beautiful example of fine German Majolica by the Zell Factory. The background is deep green in color and has raised basket weave design. Wonderful raised relief of green vines and leaves and deep bluish purple grapes, decorate the center of this plate. There are several small rim flakes that have been painted over so they are not noticeable. IT IS RARE TO FIND 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.
We have a similar plate PLT691 with the grape motif but the background is a softer turquoise color. These two would look great together displayed on a wall!
Backstamp: Zell Harmersbach inside circle with Made In Germany and Hand Painted around it.
Measures: 9 1/8
