Mid Century Bavarian Dessert Plates

In the 1950s, Hans Achtzinger ruled the art department at the centuries old Hutschenreuther Selb porcelain factory in Bavaria, Germany. He embraced Christian Dior’s “New Look” that was all the fashion. His Mid Century designs were created in porcelain pieces that were finely painted by hand. These two plates feature lovely attired women at a square/cafe scenes; they are undeniably French. All rims are gilded by hand. In the 1950s, small plates like these were commonly used for snacks or pastries. Both are undamaged and in beautiful vintage condition.
