Royal Bayreuth Hand Painted & Signed Reticulated Plate, c.1902

Description: An antique, really beautiful plate from Royal Bayreuth, Tettau, Bavaria, c.1902. Slightly oblong and squared-off, it has gilt, art nouveau form cut-outs on 4 corners. With a matte pale cream ground, it has scattered sprays of hand painted white roses with raised enamel highlighting and green leaves. Gorgeous articulation; beautifully made. Signed by the artist on the front, it looks like "A. Kinert"? See photos...

Dimensions: 10 3/8" x 10 1/8"

Markings: On the back: stamped in blue, the old Royal Bayreuth mark (dating it to c.1902) hand written in gold, "Hand painted _vory" (see photos - I can't list this word or eBay kicks my listing out) impressed, "Deponiert" (German for 'registered')

Condition: Excellent. No breaks, crazing or discoloration. T's some paint fading, as well as gilt loss (especially around the perimeter). T's also a small 'scale' chip on the back by one of the handles - see photos. It's noticeable on the back, but barely noticeable on the front.

Payment Terms: Payments Accepted: Domestic (US) buyers: I accept and prefer payment be made through PayPal, although I also accept money orders and personal checks (item will be shipped after check clears, usually about 10 days after receipt). International

Shipping Terms: I'll ship this item anyw to anyone. International bidders welcome. Please use the shipping calculator included in all my listings to determine the cost of shipping High bidder pays winning bid plus shipping (see below) and insurance. I don't insist on insurance for all items (some I do), but even though your item will be packed very well, I strongly suggest it - I can't be held responsible for damage or loss in the mail. Domestic Shipping: I normally ship via USPS Priority Mail (approx. 2-3 day transit time); although I sometimes give an option for USPS Parcel Post (approx. 3 days) for heavier items. I require Delivery Confirmation on every domestic item I send out. This lets both seller & buyer track their item in transit, and gives the Post Office a way to find it should it get lost. Insurance: $201.00 and up insured items require a signature (they will not be just left at your door) $50.00-$200.00 insured items will be left at your door. If you'd prefer to sign for your item, please let me know before paying for your item - Signature Confirmation will have to be added. International Shipping (including Canada): USPS First Class Mail International: For items 4 lbs and under. Approx. transit time of 6-10 business days. This doesn't give an option for insurance, so if you want to insure your item, it must be sent via USPS Priority Mail International (which is usually more expensive - see below). USPS Priority Mail International: For items over 4 pounds, and for any insured items. Approx. transit time of 6-10 business days. The fee includes a small amount of insurance based on the weight of the package; additional insurance is available. ***An additional shipping charge of $2.00 is added to all internationally shipped items, to cover the cost of additional packing expenses.

Multiple Item Shipping: I'm happy to combine shipping charges on multiple wins, within reason. However, the buyer must bring it to my attention ahead of time if one item has been won & paid for, but another for the multiple ship is still pending. I can't be held responsible if I'm not notified.

Refunds & Returns: If you win this item and upon receiving it find my description to be grossly inaccurate, I will gladly refund the full (or partial, if applicable) bid price, minus a 10% restocking fee (this covers the listing cost). Returning buyer pays for shipping & insurance ba...
