Antique Villeroy & Boch 8" embossed plate - Rich aqua color w/frog NICE
- Source: eBay
Nice blue/green embossed antique Villeroy & Boch (V&B) Plate. Subject is a black spotted green frog with leaves, possibly lily pads and a pink flower with white center. I'm assuming this is Majolica. I'm not knowledgeable about these plates, however.Size: just under 8" I've looked both on the Internet & on Ebay, but I was not able to find this exact plate. . Mark on bottom: V&B with a S below & in a circle. Below that is a word I can't read & a 422. Below that is an X. From what I've read, the V&B S in circle mark was used from 1883 to about 1912, & the fact that it is not marked "Made in Germany" makes it in the earlier part of that date range. CONDITION: No chips or cracks other than 2 tiny chips to glaze on back side. Also, there is some crazing. Some of what you see in the pics is reflections rather than defects.
