Two Antique Blue and White plates

Pair of antique plates with vivid cobalt blue floral and abstract motifs. Late 18th or early 19th Century.

Both plates have some dings around the edges and the darker plate has been broken and repaired.

The antique repair job is in itself fascinating. In the 18th and 19th Century plates were literally sewn back together with metal stiches or staples by specialized traveling repairmen known as Beckibüezer.

Each plate measures 25 cm in diameter.
