The ultimate display piece! This Gorgeous, antique, hand-painted Bavaria, Germany cake plate is in PRISTINE condition! Incredible floral sprays flow in the center of this piece, with fused gold and white flower buds (creates a raised texture to the hand painted flowers). 22 K Gold Gilding highlights the scalloped interior and trim as well as the swags and swirls that resemble flowing ribbons. Hand-Painted signature mark 3486, indicative of March 4, 1886, on underside of plate. Really remarkable, bright fuchsia perimeter of this plate, with floral bouquets featuring pink, blue, yellow, and white flowers. (See if you can find the sweet little bumble bee buzzing near one of the bouquets!!) No chips, cracks, crazing, or paint loss. Measures 9" Diameter (Note the petite size, as cakes in the 1800's were quite small!) Likely a very special occasion cake plate, as in a wedding, anniversary, or funeral.
Fabulous piece of history to display and use!
