Here is fine Aynsley Bone China in a two-piece set of the Dinner Plate and the matching Bread and Butter Plate in the discontinued Bramble Time pattern. The scalloped rim of each plate is covered in six Blackberry Brambles made up of ripe Berries in deep blue and purple on the vine with variegated green leaves. With the high-quality feel that Aynsley is known for, the textured brambles are highlighted with shiny gold leaves. Wisps of pale leaves tucked within the vines peek out among flourishes of curling tendrils. Each snow-white bone china plate has an embossed line around the scalloped and gilded rim that matches the shape.
The elegant dinner plate measures 10-1/2 inches in diameter, and the matching bread and butter plate measures 6-1/2 inches in diameter.
Each is stamped with a red crown flanked by “Est. 1775” above the Aynsley Banner, followed by “Made in England/ Fine English/ Bone China.” This mark was uses by Aynsley during the 1960s and 1970s. The pattern name “Bramble Time” is stamped in large script below the mark.
The dinner plate shows some pinpoint bubble imperfections in the application of the gold on the rim. There are also minimal utensil marks seen only when held in the right light. The bread and butter plate has a pinhead-sized mark in the gold rim, likely a minuscule utensil mark. There are no chips or cracks to either exquisite plate.
What a beautiful way to add to your existing collection or start a new one!
