Vintage 1977 Bjorn Wiinblad for Rosenthal The Annunciation Decorative Plate

Vintage 1977 Bjorn Wiinblad for Rosenthal The Annunciation Decorative Plate

SKU: 874

Finding vintage Bjorn Wiinblad designed pieces is always a special moment; his whimsical, swirling designs just make your heart smile!  This is a beautiful decorative wall hanging plate with an debossed circular shape within the cushion shaped plate itself.  The embossing runs around the raised edges of the plate too.. the pictures just don't do this piece justice!  The Annuciation - Gabriel telling Mary that she would conceive and bear Jesus, with a dove flying above them, done in a fanciful, almost Arabesque style applied in gold, periwinkle, and turquoise done in Wiinblad's iconic style. It is signed, dated, and noted "Weihnacten" (German for Christmas) 1977. This is really such a spectacular piece - heavy, intricate in detail, just SO well done!!
