Offered for your collecting pleasure is this FABULOUS antique majolica plate.
This is an original Villeroy&Boch/Schramberg mold originally made in the Schramberg majolica factory in Germany in the 1800's.
Villeroy & Boch sold this factory in 1912 and the new mark became the Shield with SMF in the center.
This lovely antique plate features a very ornate display of a single flower in the center with 16 flowers and their stems and leaves radiating out from the center!
It is in a very handsome color of green with white and yellow flowers. As you can see in photos 5 and 6, another example from the late 1800's. That one is a tray but you can see the pattern is the same.
This beautiful green plate is well marked on the back with the impressed pattern number and size number, "1175/8", it also has the SMF shield mark, though faint.
This wonderful antique majolica plate measures 7.25 inches in diameter and has no chips or cracks! Three very small stilt marks on the back from being fired in the kiln which is normal with antique majolica.
We have several of these available and a large platter. Please inquire!
