C1850 set of 6 Hand Painted Plates

$120.00 set of 6.

Fabulous for afternoon tea or dinner, these robust porcelain plates are 24 cm in diameter. There are no chips or cracks but the hand painted flowers and gilding are worn. These would have been part of a dessert service. As steel knives are not used on dessert plates, it was possible to hand paint the centre with fruit, flowers, or landscapes. As these are bright and attractive but worn, I think they can cope with knife and fork activity, making them as useful for a steak as for a cake.
