Fine estate quality antique Majolica Green Leaf Plate, in a rich, dark green glaze, with a beautiful design of four leaves in a basket. Beautifully molded, each leaf is detailed, the lustrous glaze shines beautifully after 152+ years. Rare to find in this condition, the back is un-marked.
Stilt marks from the original firing on the back as you should find on Majolica of this time period. This is a fabulous decorative plate to display with your collection of French and English early majolica plates, bowls and platters. There are two of these available, but their glaze differs ever so slightly, one has slight small dark indents to the surface glaze indicative of these early plates. Please only purchase if you love and appreciate old pieces with the grace of time.
