Post-war German Patriotic Plate by Meissen, Ernst Thalmann 1886-1944
A scarce Meissen plate within its original presentation case, approx 15cm diameter 'biscuit' porcelain in beautiful unmarked condition, plate celebrates Ernst Thalmann 1886 to 1944 and his life and work for socialism and peace. The front face has Thalmann's portrait with the words 'The dead never again admonish fascism' with the rear words stating 'His life and work served the cause of socialism and peace'. Ernst Thalmann was the leader of the Communist party in Germany during the Weimar Republic, arrested by the Gestapo in 1933 and held in solitary confinement for eleven years before being shot in 1944 on Hitlers orders at Buchenwald. Meissen is extremely collectable and attracts a lot of interest in general. A scarce early postwar Meissen patriotic plate.
