Antique Blue Onion Porcelain Warming Dish Plate WMF Metal Bottom As Is


Brand Etsy

This is an antique Blue Onion pattern porcelain warming dish or plate. People often identify this plate as being by Meissen, but being unable to access the underside, I cannot ascribe this to Meissen. The handled metal pan housing that would hold water has a small hole in it (see close-up photo), so the dish cannot be used as intended - you would have to have this patched somehow in order to use it as a warming dish. In addition, there is wear to the plating on the underside. The metal is stamped Germany with a mark that looks like MW, possibly for WMF (Wrtemburgische Machin Fabrik AG) who typically made these dishes. The piece measures 9 3/4 in diameter exclusive of its spout and has a height of 2 1/8. Sold AS IS, but despite the hole, this makes a wonderful display piece for an antique kitchen decor.
