Large Vintage Game Plate with ElkLarge Vintage Game Plate with ElkLarge Vintage Game Plate with Elk

This 12 & 3/4 inch game charger is probably vintage late 1800's and it is most likely of German origin, but it is unmarked. The bull elk is very alert as his females graze amongst the flowering trees.

The images on the platter are realistic and beautifully colored. They have been applied via transfer and the bottom edge was then colored with a misty green which added a beautiful definition. There are the usual manufacturing anomalies such as small miss-painted areas and small irregular ceramic surfaces that are expected in a platter this old. It is also crazed, which is a result of age. There are also some "rub marks" which were caused by mishandling. These could easily be repaired, if one found them objectionable .Otherwise it's in excellent condition and absent of any chips or cracks. This is a beautiful and artistic display piece.
