A matt-finished, fine relief - showing maidens framed by twigs - enhances the translucency of the delicate porcelain.
The rims on the plates are wider than ever before to fit in the depiction of the opera in relief and in great detail. The relief surfaces are not glazed but smoothed and polished after the second firing to produce the delecate matt finish that contrasts with the glaze of the rest of the piece.
The relief design resembles the magic flute decor - these items demand an elaborate manufacturing process - that' s why they are so precious.
