The FEIBP plate was 'discovered by chance' by Susanna Cavazza from Societa Italiana Technospazzole SpA  in an Antique shop in Bologna.

It is Solid Silver, it was build early 1900's so it is as old as ABMA!

The plate style is called 'Barocchetto' ( light baroque).  This particular style is historically placed in the years 1730-1760.  The French name for this style is 'Rococò' (from rocaille/coquille related to this decoration being somehow similar to a shell).  The 'Rococò' style was born in France with Louis 16th and in Italy was called 'Barocchetto'.

A platter build with this style is a symbol of 'long lasting beauty', of 'solid friendship', of 'best wishes for prosperity'

....for all our ABMA friends from FEIBP!
