This is a terrific vintage porcelain collectible plate designed by Juan Ferrandiz, "The Flutist", made by Schmid in 1981. The little flutist is making music while a cat and mouse dance at his feet and children watch with delight. It is the first in "The Music Makers" series, limited edition. It is #8800/10,000. It is 6-1/2" in diameter, pre-owned and in great shape. There are some tiny manufacturing silk screening flaws that I can see with a loupe. It comes in the original box with a brochure and the Certificate of Authenticity. The box has a small surface scratch and some stains most of which appear to be age related foxing.
