Delicately potted and painted polychrome plate with a minute painting of flowers in small joined panels.

The designs are painted in overglaze enamels and underglaze cobalt, and then accented with gilding. The rim has a delicate border of a cobalt crosshatch with interrupted iron red designs. The rim edge has a faint iron application.

The very thinly hand potted porcelain plate has been covered in a nice thick very soft and smooth glaze. When held to a light, the plate is translucent. The glaze has good control stopping just above the foot. There is a slight raised foot that is unglazed. The base is glazed and you can see the potter’s wheel rings under the glaze.

There are no marks or labels.

MEASUREMENTS

6 ¼” (15.9 cm) diameter x 1 ¼” (3.2 cm) deep. Weighs 6.1 oz (175 g)

CONDITION

There are no breaks, cracks, or chips. The plate rings true. There is wear to the gilding and very slight wear in the central well. Otherwise, it looks fresh, bright and hardly used.

A delicate beautifully painted plate to add to a collection or just serve cookies on.
