Exceptional Antique Green Majolica Leaf Serving Platter, with a stunning decorative design of leaves and grape clusters. Glazed a rich, lustrous green, beautifully molded and the details are superb. Rare to find in this condition, thick and beautiful. Please forgive me the photo, the glaze is so reflective, even after all these years.
Unmarked, this heirloom dates to the mid to late 1800's. The stilt marks from the original firing are visible on the back. The glaze is glossy, a few areas on the relief grapes design less so, this platter is over 140 years old! From the estate of a collector, display with your estate collection of French and English early majolica platters, bowls and plates.
