This stunning ten inch cabinet plate has the blue mark with the green German logo, which could date it to 1887 (if I can read the chart correctly!) The decoration looks like it's partially transferred, and then hand colored. Some of the other details are also hand painted. The handles are pierced and then gilded, as is the entire rim. The colors are clean and vibrant, and there are no chips or cracks but a small amount of the rim gilding is rubbed.
Hand Painted china was very popular during the early 1900's. The striking colors and imagined scenes that were professionally completed in a factory , studio, or by skilled artist, created everlasting art that would be as fresh and new 100 years later as when it was painted. During the late 1800's and early 1900's hand painted plates became a favorite hobby of many Americans. China blanks were purchased from many French, German, and Bavarian companies and beautiful works of art were created by professionals and hobbyists.
