These lovely Victorian porcelain plates are richly gilded and hand painted with very ethereal flowers. The daintily scalloped rim is trimmed with gold, inside that there is a border of acorns and daisies also in gold. There are gorgeous poppies in orange and white with hand applied gold enamel dots in their centers, and violets and white daisies. They are a fine translucent porcelain measuring 7 1/8" across, Victorian from the mid 1800s, and unmarked, but are thought to be English. The plates are in good to excellent antique condition, and ring like a bell. There is a little fading on the paint which just adds to their charm, so nothing to worry about.
