This is a vintage Schumann Bountiful Echt Cobalt chop plate or round platter with a fruit center decal of an apple, cherries, and a walnut. The rim has a wide cobalt blue band with gold trim on either side. The platter is 11 3/4" wide. There are two backstamps. One is blue underglaze and reads "Echt Cobalt Bavaria Schumann Arzberg Germany Inglasur." The other is an over glaze mark that is a shield with a crown in the center. It reads "Golden Crown E&R 1886." Underneath that is the printed pattern name Bountiful in black. The chop plate is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, crazing, or utensil marks.
