Elegant antique Minton 4pc 8 3/4" luncheon or entremet sized plate set made for Tiffany & Co. and Davis Collator & Co., NY with gorgeous raised & encrusted gold enamel borders! A set of four, great additions to an existing set if you happen to have this pattern (appears to be pattern # H138). Minton made custom patterns for a number of international retailers, Tiffany & Company, Davis & Collamore, Bailey Banks & Biddle but normally they are unique to the individual retailer so it's somewhat odd to find this exact pattern with marks for two different retailers, both New York based. An elegant pattern, frieze style bands around the rim and inner circles with ornate raised gold decoration in between. A beautiful place setting for four, addition to your existing service or great as decorative plates.
Very good condition. No chips or cracks but there is some visible crazing to the glaze (back and front center white portions). You can see the crazing in the close-up photos of the maker marks. Nothing really to detract from the beauty but an aspect worth mentioning. All identical pattern, all 8.75" in diameter.
