This is one the finest pieces of porcelain I have handled-It is probably French and was bought in Switzerland-no condition problems----it has silver rim and was made in concert with the discovery of The Pharaoh King Tut--in 1922--this piece dates close to that date-TuT Tomb discovery led the Egyptian influence in the Art Deco period--plate is 11 inches diameter-it is depressed to 2 inches deep-not apparent in my photography is that the stunning gold background is filled with embossed hieroglyphics --ca 1920s--high end piece
