The set includes dinner, salad, dessert and bread plates, as well as double-handled cream soups with underplates and teacups with saucers. One extra dinner plate is provided for 97 pieces total. This Minton pattern was so popular that it was in production from 1915 until Minton ceased gold encrusted production some time in the 1980s.
The plates feature 4 large rectangular panels containing a neoclassical style ornament composed of a central lotus flower and scrolling acanthus, these panels are separated by 4 smaller panels that contain a quatrefoil ornament composed of four linked lotus flowers that surround a beaded oval that itself encloses a diamond form. All this design is rendered in 22-karat raised paste gold, and 22-karat acid etched gold bands surround the panels, plate well and plate rim.
