10 Antique Minton English Porcelain Hand Painted Plates Set Birds Blue Gold Gilt
Outstanding set of 10 antique Minton English porcelain 9 plates. Each plate is beautifully hand painted in vibrant colors and finely detailed. Featuring a lovely motif comprising of differing birds among foliage on a white ground, framing a gorgeous blue border and white center well. Finished with gilt trim. Impressed Minton with a date mark for 1879. In overall good condition with general wear. No chips or cracks. One plate having crazing. The set is crafted of fine quality English porcelain, beautiful to the eyes and the motif is quite charming. This is an assembled set, so there are slight variances. Three plates measure 8 7/8. Four plates are marked with the Minton crowned globe and date mark for 1892, marked further for retailed at Davis Collamore. I do see a slight difference in the decoration compared to the rest of the service since these four plates were made later: there is the addition of a gilded trim where the birds stand on… And they have a total of six birds in the decoration whereas the other plates have a total of nine birds in the arrangement. They do blend in well and this is not easily noticeable. Davis Collamore & Co. At the time, a rival and competitor to Tiffany & Co. And Black, Starr & Frost.
