Deep plate of circular form. The design is a rough transcription of that on a Chinese export famille rose plate, having in the centre a pink peony spray and, set round the cavetto, three sprays of flowering prunus in yellow and brownish-red; as well as other pink floral sprays. All these are enclosed within an irregular pointed, gilt-outlined frame resembling the Chinese leaf pattern, which, through the filling-in of the remainder of the rim as a 'birdseye' ground in brown is made to appear in reserve.
Very thin plate of earthenware covered with a tin glaze and painted in enamel colours and gilding. On underside marked with letter HE and old paper label with red ink inscription. Diameter approx 22,5 cm.
Slovakian, Holitsch / Holic, circa 1760.
