This is an extremely unique little plate. As identified on its flip side it was made in Russia. It bears a manufacturers mark I am unfamiliar with. It appears well made and completely in tact, but the charm and specialness of it is totally in the very intricate and detailed art work and very complex and pleasing mix of a variety of colors.

There seems to be a story behind the scene of a man and woman bundled up against the cold and riding behind a team of 2 horses who are racing quickly through the snow with another matching horse running along beside them. The ground trees and two rooftops in the distance are covered with beautiful fresh snow that is depicted in a beautiful white color outlined in blue. All of this is painted against a busy background patterning with narrow lilac-purple lines on a white background.

Are the man and woman the famous characters in the Doctor Zhivago story or another similar Russian tale. The snowy scene itself has a very familiar holiday look, however I doubt the human figures are meant to represent Santa and his Mrs.

Anyway its a truly beautiful little art piece that would make a lovely display piece and conversation piece with your holiday decorations. I can see it propped on an easel among the greenery you might have garlanded on a mantle. It would look great and be at eye level for your guests viewing.

The little plate measures 4 3/4" wide. It has an intentional shallow indentation in its center that is barely visible with all the patterning. There is a little wear to the very narrow gold edging, but the rest of the paint, and the china itself is in excellent condition.

Combined orders totaling over $35 SHIP FREE.

LATE NOTE - I have learned that the mark on the back of the plate identifies it as from the Lomonosov Porcelain Factory. This Imperial Porcelain Factory was established by Dmitry Ivanovich Vinogradov in 1744. It was supported by the Romanov tsars.
