Herend Large Round Platter
Herend round platter, unique. Features the lovely "Fruits & Flowers" design (pattern), first introduced in the 1860s. Like all authentic Herend pieces, this was made and hand painted in Hungary. Vintage-antique piece. The mark on the bottom maps to the Herend Hungary mark from pieces made between 1915-1930. Provenance: This was part of a private collection in Boston, Massachusetts.
Round platter measures 14.5" (inches) in diameter. The patterned "lip" or edge around the platter measures about 1" (inch) in height. The round rim features 24k gold accent. See photos for original Herend stamp. The only wear on the piece is on the bottom where the plate would sit on a table. Still, that should not take away from the value of the piece. In all of the research that I've done, this appears to be a very unique piece.
I checked the official Herend website and there are no platters available in the current "Fruits & Flowers" collection; the largest piece they are selling on the site is a dinner plate at US $280. No other platters like this appear on all of the usual sites (Replacements, Scully, Etsy, etc.).
I am selling for US $395. This is a must-have for Herend collectors, especially those hoping to complete a vintage Fruits & Flowers set.
