For your consideration is this amazing antique plate from Kittel & Klingenberg.
This features gilded edges accenting the earthy tones of the body. The subject of this art is a pair of starfish, beautifully painted and dotted with enamel for extra appeal. You can see the brush strokes when held to a certain angle, almost following the course of the artist. The artist has signed this work in the bottom right, and the date is 04, which is of course 1904.
The plate measures about 8 3/4″ in diameter. The back is marked AK France. This is a Limoges piece, gifted with the fine clay found in the Limoges region of France. This clay makes very high-quality porcelain.
The condition of this piece is very good with no chips or cracks noted and minimal finish wear.
