Qing Rose Medallion Porcelain Plate
Here is a rose medallion plate that stands out from the rest. It is beautiful decorated with the traditional scroll and flower border interspersed with 4 alternating scenes of flowers and birds. Butterflies form an inner border that surrounds a basket of flowers. The large flower basket was often a motif used in the 18th century. This plate combines elements of that earlier motif with the bright enamels and lavishly decorated rose medallion border popular in the 19th century.
This plate is in very good condition, with minimal wear to enamel or gilding. There are no hairlines or apparent chips. It has been viewed with a black light to assess for damage, none found. The plate measures approximately 9.75 inches.
