We are thrilled to offer a dessert/salad plate from König Ludwig III of Bavaria’s royal table service. This plate was produced from 1900 through 1912, while Ludwig II was still Bavaria’s Prinz Regent. Schloß Nymphenburg was the Bavarian royal household’s summer castle. Located in what is today suburban Munich, it was first built in 1664. The Schloß and its grounds cover more than 200 acres. Interestingly, the Munich 1972 Summer Olympics dressage (equestrian) events were held on the castle grounds. The plate is twelve-sided, and measures 8 1/8″ in diameter. Without a doubt, this is the most beautiful, elaborately hand painted royal plate of the many we have offered. Two shades of blue and a royal gold are featured. An ornate pattern is displayed throughout. The plate’s central theme is a house on a lake or river. It is very striking, and would make a fine addition to any collection.
