A HAUSMALER-STYLE PLATE 19TH CENTURY OR LATER
painted in the style attributed to Johann Friedrich Metsch, crossed swords mark in underglaze-blue.

Good condition. The center of the plate is heavily scratched under the enamel, many of the scratches with 'soft' edges suggesting that the plate was later or re-decorated.
