A rather pleasant and great condition oval slipware platter from Dieter Kunzemann, roughly around 1967. These rarely appear for sale and this one is a beauty. It is glazed in brown on the front, and carries the yellowy crew Wheat res decor. Unglazed toon the back. Stamped on the back. There are no cracks or damage on this item, just a little gentle age appropriate wear.
Size: Approximately 30cm x 23cm.
