Vintage Hand Painted Limoges Floral 9 1/2 Cake Pedestal Plate Rare Black Color. Bottom stamped in green in two places. The florals are skillfully and boldly depicted, in the manner of the grand Dutch still-lifes. Piece has a very elegant presence with the scalloped top and bottom embellished in gold and the flared base. Of course, it is the bright hand painted flowers against the black background that makes this such a wonderfully dramatic piece.
It is most unusual and unexpected to find. Black on the top surface. This Cake stand is in excellent condition, with no cracks or stains. There is one tiny chip on the underside of the platter along the inner rim (see photos). Does distracting since it is minimal and on the underside.
The colors of the hand painted flowers remain bright and vibrant and the surface has little to no wear. Measurements are, 4 1/4" in height and 9 1/2" in diameter.
