A set of four antique Majolica plates with a theme of asparagus and artichokes on a creamy white background. The asparagus and artichokes are in soft hues of blue and shades of green. A large stroke of green in the form of an artichoke leaf highlights one half of the plates. The plates are not marked; however, they may be by Salin. More restrained in color than so often found when the subject is asparagus, the plates work well with a table setting or for display. Each time I look at the plates my mind begins to think of spring and outdoor dining......asparagus and artichokes....let me count the ways I love to prepare them.
Circa 1880. A matching set of four for a total of eight is available.
Measurements; 9 " Condition; a few missing areas of glaze which can be touched up if used for serving, normal crazing in accordance with age and use
