This is a fantastic platter by Highmount from western Germany. This design is also one that Zell potteries use. It is covered in a beautiful turquoise tin glaze and has a decorative scroll like edge. The plates have birds, grapes and leaves done in pastels and earth tones with the grapes being done in purple that pops and the feet of the birds in black. The typical raised elements are found that is accustomed with majolica and they are well defined and very nicely painted. IT IS RARE TO FIND VINTAGE AND ANTIQUE 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.
This would make a wonderful addition to any majolica collection. Check out our other matching pieces listed. If you search on Turquoise it should bring these up.
This plate is pictured in the book titled "Majolica" by Mark F. Moran. Backstamp: Highmount M.B.D.Made in Western Germany 230 impressed 42 stamped
