These porcelain plates were produced in Germany by Meissen around 1750. They have the blue underglaze crossed swords mark from this period. The plates have a diameter of 9 1/2 inches. The rims are scalloped and there is a molded basket-weave type border. The plates are about 1 1/2 inches deep. They are hand painted with colorful fruits and flowers. There are butterflies and flower buds dotting each piece. Lacy gilding trims the rims. They are priced individually. Condition: There is wear to the gilding on the rims. There are light surface scratches in the centers. One plate has two glazed-over nicks in the foot ring that occurred in the manufacturing process. Overall, these plates are in fine shape, considering their age.
