BAVARIA DESSERT PLATE Hand Painted Strawberries, Leaves & Blossoms Circa 1940s (7 ½”)
This beautiful vintage HAND PAINTED DECORATIVE PLATE is painted with a spray of ripe red strawberries, yellow strawberry blossoms, and green leaves. The background behind the design is a peachy-pink. The rim of the plate is scalloped with gold gilt on the edge. The porcelain is very thin, similar to bone china and is translucent when held to the light.
The plate is stamped with BAVARIA and an embossed 162. It measures 7 ½” in diameter and is in great vintage condition. The hand painted design is very clear without scratches or damage. There is minor gold loss on the edge but no crazing, chips or cracks. There is a small piece of glazed ceramic (see the photo) on the bottom possibly where the piece sat on the kiln stilt.
The plate would be beautiful as a display/cabinet plate, as a bonbon dish, or to just enjoy a dessert.
