A magnificent set of 12 Rosenthal gilt encrusted service plates in the Baroque style with royal blue banding. An elegant set, the plates could be used for display in a cabinet or to enhance a formal table setting.
Phillip Rosenthal, who initially purchased white blanks from the Hutschenreuther factory, established Rosenthal porcelain in 1884. His talented wife Maria initially painted the wares, which were sold door to door by her enterprising husband. In 1891, Rosenthal established his own porcelain factory, which quickly expanded to include factories in other cities. By World War II, Rosenthal operated 10 companies and employed over 5,000 people. His son took over operations after the war and modernized the business to include many new and innovative designs pulling away from the Baroque and Rococo style of the earlier wares. Rosenthal hired some of the best artists of the day which propelled the reputation of the factory and helped secure its continued lineage as one of the most respected of Continental porcelain manufacturers.
The plates are in excellent condition, marked with a mid-20th century stamp. Each plate has a minute amount of wear to the inner gilded band which shows minor color demarcation.
Size: 11" Diameter.
