It concerns a round deep plate made of thick-walled hard porcelain with a glossy white cover. . The flat is painted all around with a wide black band between which a hand-painted “Antique” Roman decor of a Roman warlord sitting on the roof with a cloak to the knees and a helmet with a crest on the head. It looks out on a Roman temple with columns, on which are eight statues. All this is done in camaïeu brown. In the foreground we see flowers and tendrils in black. The sky is painted almost sapphire blue. There is a circular outline in reddish brown at the transition from elevation to edge. The elevation remains white blank, as does most of the flat elevating edge. In the collar we see gray in camaïeu. a very nicely worked out mark of the intertwined initials “M and P”. The edge is circled with three parallel red lines, which show a circular band in turquoise below and above. The lip is repainted with a dark brown outline. The reverse side is fully glazed and inside the round base ring we see the overglaze painted symbols “sickle, scythe and hammer” in sapphire blue (the mark of the National Porcelain Factory of St. Petersburg, which was the Imperial Porcelain Manufactory until 1917). with the year 1919. Underneath in sapphire blue “лo puc. M. AБamobura ”and an oval circle in brown with“ F. Stürtz Odessa ”and the imprinted numbers“ 1401 ”and“ 907 ”.
The condition is very good, no chips. The glaze on the elevation shows a few faint spots (due to use) and one black dot. In any case, it remains a very beautiful, sought-after and exceptional Russian propaganda sign.
