Description

This gorgeous 9 3/4 inch antique cabinet plate was realistically hand painted with lilies of the valley and their leaves on a matte off white background. It was made in Bohemia by the firm of Oscar and Edgar Gutherz {usually abbreviated to O. & E.G.}. In 1898, Edgar joined brother Oscar in the business and they began using the mark that is stamped in green on the reverse {photograph #4}. The pure white porcelain pieces were often signed by the artist; this plate was signed by "Martin." In 1918 the Royal Austria Factory became part of OEPIAG, the Austrian Porcelain Industry and ceased using this mark.

This plate is in pristine condition, with the only wear evident that of slight gilt loss on the very edge of the scalloped rim. It's obvious this plate has lived its long life protected from use, so it can be enjoyed now and displayed with pride.
