Antique Porcelain Plate Vienna Floral Hand Painted China PH Leonard


Brand Etsy

This is a lovely antique porcelain plate that is hand painted with very pretty flowers. It is signed by the artist Donner. The piece is marked on the underside with Vienna Hand Painted China and with the crowned Vienna Austria mark - these marks are normally attributed to the New York importer PH Leonard, who used the crowned mark from 1885 until 1898 at which time Leonard went bankrupt, but the crowned mark was then used by Bawo & Dower, then Charles L. Dwenger and finally by Paul A. Straub in 1915 - all of these firms were New York based importers. The rim is raised and scalloped and generously trimmed in gold. The plate measures 8 3/4 in diameter. It is in very good, clean, condition with no chips, cracks or noted wear. Lovely quality - these Vienna imported pieces were meant to replicate the china previously made at the Royal Vienna Manufactory - a very pretty display plate!
