Dramatic Coalport Tree of Life Porcelain Plate - The tree of life, emblazoned with golden leaves, rises from the green earth, against the bluest sky. A gilded fence protects it from a field of wheat and a halo of orange flowers crowns its glory. One of the most beautiful of Coalport's Imari influenced designs it is rarely seen. It would enhance any collection of porcelain if not becoming the star attraction. Circa 1810. HEIGHT: .5" DIAMETER: 8.5" - The Spare Room, Baltimore, MD
I have owned some amazing plates by KPM over the years but this one along with the other five on the site have to be the most amazing plates I have ever seen from this period in the Weichmalerei style.
