Nymphenburg Plate

Porzellan Manufaktur Nymphenburg, Germany materials: glazed porcelain with over-glaze painting, 24 k gold edge notes: Originating in the late 18th century, but, until now, not produced in modern times, this extraordinarily finely painted faux-rustic piece was especially created by Nymphenburg for Fertile Garden. When creating a copper engraving from an existing picture, it was quite common for the engraver to attach the image with tacks or small nails to a pin-board in front of the worktable.
