Hand painted china is so lovely whether it was produced by a professional decorating studio or by an individual artist in a home environment. This lovely set of 6 plates was probably created in home studio atmosphere. Two of the plates have blue borders with pink and white roses; two of the plates have tan borders with pink roses and two of the plates have lavender borders with yellow roses. Each of the plates have a different gold tracery design on the inside of the colored border with plain gold edge. The plates are 8 5/8" across, coup shape and no cracks, chips or repairs. Two different marks appear on the various plates, "Bavaria" and "Royal Crescent China - Bavaria". All are factory drilled for use as wall decor. A very pretty set for use or display.
