Arte Morbelli Five Porcelain Plates with 24k Golden Inserts

About the Item

Fantastic set of five decorative porcelain plates produced by Arte Morbelli, of fine Italian manufacture. Each plate can be hung as a decorative object, or you can use them as real plates. The plates are made entirely of ceramic, with designs and edges in 24 karat gold, very precious and elegant. The plates contain designs of animals symbolic of every historical era and every area of the world. They are represented: a quadruped with a back decorated with red and gold squiggles, representing Southern Russia; a donkey also decorated in gold and purple and represents the period of greatest flowering of the Persian period (500-400 BC); the Egyptian jewel with gold and blue scarab, symbol of the great pharaoh Tutankhamen (1349 BC. C.); Chimù jewel representing the symbol of the Peruvian chiefs of the pre-Columbian period (1100-1300); a Minoan jewel, representing pre-Hellenic Greece, depicting a person holding two large herons by the neck, overhanging 4 snakes. The plates are suitable as centerpieces, but mostly as decorative plates given their historical impressiveness.
