Designed by artist Barbara Fürstenhöfer for the Böckling Glass company of Reutter, Germany, this gorgeously illustrated plate depicting Autumn is part of a 1980s seasonal plate collection. Among the delightful images are women harvesting grapes and apples, a man carrying a harvest basket on his back while a dog runs before him and a child after him, and two owls perched in a nearby tree — all happening as clouds float above in an orange 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 Autumn would make for an excellent addition to your own plate collection or as a great gift for someone you cherish.
