A beautiful pair of Antique 19th Century Meissen Porcelain Plates, with bright stunning hand painted scenes. The plates have the painted basketweave around the scalloped rims, accented with gilt scroll work. In the center, carefully hand painted Watteau style courting scenes, with the bright enamel colors Meissen is renowned for.
Wonderful condition, with slight wear to the gilt rims, these were extremely well taken care of by a collector, no doubt. Both have the crossed swords mark, showing these were made between 1852 through 1870. A wonderful addition to your collection of rare and magical antique porcelain.
