This set just beg to be on the wall or in your cabinet for decorative accent. They are stunningly beautiful. Hand painted, each has a pair of exotic birds in vignette, and the pink border with raised 'jewel' dots and the gold accents elevate them to fine art rather than just plates, truly. I see them on a corbel-supported shelf above a window, valance-like, which is how I have a set of beautiful old flow blue plates in my own kitchen. You know the look, yes? Or just above a pair of bracket shelves as we've shown them in the final image. Beautiful, as well, layered with your favourite antique dinner plates, but please please don't eat from these. Lift them and replace with the first course or salad plate, after your guests are seated and have enjoyed the stunning table you've set for their pleasure. We have just 4 of these. You're buying the set of 4.
Very good to excellent condition, as shown in our images. Not a scratch or utensil mark on any of them, so they've been decorative cabinet plates all this time, or stored away. No chips, nips, hairlines or other damage to report. Also no maker mark, but they certainly have every indication of being Minton or similar. The quality is definitely there.
