Set of 4 Antique Royal Worcester Plates for Dessert, Fruit, Luncheon – 8 3/8 Diameter, Hand Painted Cobalt Blue, Floral, Gold Trim. Only 4 of the 10 were at the estate sale when I obtained them. All are marked with pattern # 940 with softly scalloped edges. They are approximately 8 3/8 diameter. A perfect size for salad, dessert, or fruit — or just to display. Beautiful cobalt blue wide outer band with a creamy, pale yellow as part of the white and gold/gilt trim. The center is white and painted with a variety of types of flowers. Each plate has a unique design. Condition — No chips or cracks. The gold trim is clearly worn, primarily on outer edges where they would have been handled and on the interior circle where the plates would have touched if stacked without tissue or felt between them. (see photos) The hand painted flowers are mostly intact, but there are a few places with some tiny scratches of missing paint if you look closely. It’s time for them to see the light of day and be appreciated. The reverse sides show shelf wear and some discoloration, consistent with their age. I’ve looked closely with a lighted magnifying glass, and they are clearly hand-painted. In addition, you can see the raised edges of paint strokes within the floral design. The last photo is my attempt to show the raised paint edges on some of the flowers, but I’m a poor photographer. I can find no artist’s signature. Lots of additional photos are available. From my smoke-free, fragrance-free, pet-free home. Thank you for helping me clean out my cabinets.
