These 8 porcelain plates were produced in Germany by Meissen in the 1890s. They measure 9 1/8 inches in diameter. They have a flat rim and are slightly indented in the middle. The plates are made of fine quality porcelain and are quite substantial in weight. The plates feature portraits of different animals in wonderful detail. The painting is so fine that you can see every whisker and strand of fur. The artist captured the true character as naturally as if they were photographed. There is a gilded accent and gold trim on the rims. It is really difficult to pick out a favorite. They are all so fantastic they look like they would come to life.
Condition: Excellent first quality.
