This porcelain plaque or charger was produced in Germany by Meissen around 1900. It was painted by the renowned artist Professor Julius Eduard Braunsdorf who was apprenticed at Meissen 1858. He was a specialist flower painter and art teacher. The plaque is 14 inches in diameter and has a piercing on the foot rim for hanging. The ground color is deep cobalt blue. The brightness of the flowers against the dark blue ground makes a dramatic contrast. The roses are painted with expert brushwork with attention to detail. The flowers, leaves and stems show all the stages of the plant life from buds to fading blooms. Notice the droplets of dew on a petal or leaf. It is undeniably the workmanship of a master artist.
