Gorgeous oval shaped flow blue serving platter that measures 19" long and 14" wide. From the late victorian period (1880's-early 1900's) it has a definite Art Nouveau influence with stylized flowers and curves. The outer scalloped rim is embossed and decorated with alternating cartouches and floral garlands. The color is vivid and the blue is outstanding. The platter is in great condition......no chips,cracks,or repairs. There is some minor wear and crazing characteristic of a platter this age. The back of the piece shows the most wear with a few scuff marks and a small stained area (see photo). I can find no maker's mark.....only the impressed marks as pictured. A wonderful and impressive platter to use and display!
