This is very pretty hand painted cabinet plate of a pair of birds perched on a branch full of berries intertwined with blooming morning glories over a pale green background having a scalloped rim highlighted with a delicate scalloped gold border, there is also a winged insect. Plate measures 9 3/4 inches in diameter. Marked with a registration mark dating this piece February 1st, 1865, A6850K in red over glaze, impressed MINTON.
