This is a large serving platter that measures 14 1/8″(!) in diameter. It comes from the Graf von Hochstaedt’s personal table service. He was the Fürst von Pless auf Schloss Furstenstein bei Waldenburg, Schlesien. The platter sports a golden rim highlighted by blue trim. A typed information label affixed to the platter’s reverse specifies the year 1854. This dates the platter to before our Civil War, making it nearly one-hundred-fifty years-old! Also on the reverse is the KPM hallmark from the noted Berlin firm. While the platter shows some age and usage, it is in very fine condition. This is an opportunity to own a German royal’s tableware piece that was produced in much smaller quantities, especially when compared to Kaiser Wilhelm II and other Imperial family members.
