Rs Prussia Very Rare "portrait Of A Lady" Plate:
An extremely rare find. I have never seen any of these plates for sale except the ones I bought
years ago. I have two of them with different Portrait's on the Plate.Possibly thereare four of them.
But I have no idea if there is. These identical portrait's appear on Vases in RS Prussia fourth series book.
It is truly a magnificent portrait plate. The mark is a green Prov Saxe mark. The plate is filled with
a gold fleur-de-lis pattern everywhere. The rim is gold trimmed. there are green and burgundy or maybe
it's a deep crimson color alternating panels filled with the gold fleur-de-lis. The inner portrait on the
plate is the "Portrait Of A Lady". There is two rows of beading. Between this is gold patterns. I think
the photos will best describe it. You can find an example of this portrait in "The collectors Encyclopedia
of RS Prussia the 2nd series". Look on page 156. The plate measures 7 1/2" across. There are no chips,
cracks, hairlines or restorations. There is very very little gold loss. Not noticeable at all.
Looks like a line scratch? This plate is definitely a rare beauty.
Please ask any questions.
