Rare 19thc Baranowka Polish Imperial Porcelain Soup Plate Porzellan Teller:
For sale is a very rare porcelain soup plate made in Poland by Baranowka in the early 19th century. Baranowka was founded by Michel Mezer in 1801. The porcelain was deemed equal to that of the Imperial factory of St. Petersburg and thus they were allowed to use the imperial eagle as their mark. Michel died in 1820 after which the factory rapidly declined and was finally closed in the late 19th century. The plate is nicely handpainted with a large floral arrangement in the center as well as two gold rings as trim. It is in good condition with some minor wear to the gilding and a minor chip to the footring. The plate is marked with the imperial crest in black in the back as well as the factory name in Russian in red with a 15 underneath which I do believe is a year mark! Also some incised marks I cannot make out. This is the first time I have seen or owned a piece by them so they are definitely rare! The plate is 2 inches tall and has a diameter of 9.5 inches.
