This magnificent vintage Delfts charger plate depicts a classic stag hunting scene in blue and white. The plate’s large size at 15-3/4 inches in diameter make a grand statement in a plate stand or as the centerpiece on a dining table. It can also be hung on the wall. The scene includes two traditional hunters on horseback with hunting horns, preceded by a pack of four hunting dogs who have pursued a large stag into a stream. The lush scene includes ferns, bull rushes, leafy plants and trees. The charger has a scalloped edge and beautiful decorative floral border. Marked on the bottom, “By Boch Made for Royal Sphinx Holland” and “Delfts”. Our internet research indicates this mark was used in the 1960s and 70s on transferware. Interestingly, there is a blurred area just below the center of the image, where the detail is not clear. (Please see photo #6.) The charger could have been a “second” purchased at the factory for lower cost as it is imperfect. Other than this flaw, the plate is in excellent shape, with no chips, cracks, scratches or crazing. The rim of the plate stands approximately 2″ high from the surface. There are two holes in the back with a wire for hanging. This gorgeous plate would make a fabulous focal point in the kitchen or dining room of a rustic home.
