Superb KPM Berlin Art Nouveau Porcelain Tree Leaf Scene Plate Porzellan Teller C
A plate made by KPM in the early 20th century. It is hand painted with the rarest design on these plates of this style - the tree branch / leaf motif. This one is of branch of a Hawthorn tree including its leaves and branch but also the flowers which makes this one really superb plate and one of my new favorite's of this style! Kind of the German version of the Flora Danica : Just an amazingly detailed painting and the with rim painted with gold on a raised design it is just spectacular. The plate is in perfect condition with a spot of two of minor wear to the gilding. It is 8.625 inches in diameter so a nice size and 1 inch tall. The plate is marked underneath with the under glaze blue scepter, the red orb mark, some black numbers, a painter's or gilder's mark, the usual impressed marks of this period and the name of the tree - Rotdorn in black script. This one has a plate hanger attached. Normally I would take them off but this one is a nice design and shouldn't harm the plate so it can be used and makes for an easy way to display the piece on the wall!
