Title Bisque porcelain plaque of Brandenburg Gate
Nationality German
Period 1959
Price £75.00

This Berlin factory marked (impressed sceptre) bisque porcelain plaque in a box has, on the obverse, an image of the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin, an iconic motif of the city. This would probably have been made as a piece for the tourists of the era.

The plaque is marked on the reverse, 'BERLIN 1959'. The inside of the box lid has been damaged somewhat - a bogus label had been stuck in and has been rather roughly removed.

There is no damage to the porcelain, although there is a tiny brown mark (seemingly on the surface of the glaze) on the top edge near the left corner).

testimonials

I am wholly delighted with the shako plate. [It] is a wee cracker. It is a real pleasure to have something combining both condition and quality in equal parts, and I simply could not be more pleased.

Good news, my friend, the boot knife has arrived safe and sound. This example will more than fill my collection need.
