19th Century Edme Samson “Chelsea Style” exotic fancy bird plate for your consideration. The plate measures approx. 8 inches in diameter. Hand painted exotic bird in center with hand decorated floral flowers and berries border. Raised basket weave type design with gilded edge. Marked on back with gold anchor and applied shield mark. Shows wear commensurate with age and use. Small hairline on edge of plate that measures approx. 1 1/4 inches long. The gilding is a bit faded in a few areas. These condition issues are not noticeable except under close examination. Displays elegantly!
