Designed by artist Barbara Fürstenhöfer for the Böckling Glass company of Reutter, Germany, this gorgeously illustrated plate depicting Spring is part of a 1980s seasonal plate collection. Among the stunning images are a man chopping wood, a young boy playing with a pig, a woman following ducks, boats on a nearby lake, and trees and flowers in bloom — all happening as the morning sun rises in the sky.
This collectible plate is in excellent condition, free of cracks, chips and crazing. Its colors are vivid; its theme, playful. The artist’s signature appears on the lower right on the front of the plate. The maker’s mark of Reutter, Germany appears on the back side of the plate, where a plate hanger has also been attached for easy display.
The porcelain plates of Barbara Fürstenhöfer are extremely collectible, so this plate celebrating Spring would make for an excellent addition to your own plate collection or as a great gift for someone you cherish.
