Gorgeous vintage 1924 marked Royal Worcester 6pc 10.5" dinner sized plate set with deep cobalt blue & raised gold enamel encrusted borders in a highly ornate Louis XVI style pattern! All six pieces have the Royal Worcester mark on the back in raised enamel, the date marks are for 1924 (designated by the asterisk under the crown-topped circle with eight dots). They're also double marked "Brock & Co., Los Angeles, Calif" for the California retailer. George Brock founded Brock & Co. in the 1880s in Los Angeles. The firm was known for its high quality jewellery and was dubbed the 'Tiffany of the West.' By the 1920s, they were located at 7th Street and Olive and were offering fine international products to their clientele, such as French clocks by Verger. Like many prosperous jewellers, they had their jewellery made by William Scheer and Oscar Heyman, the two leading manufacturing jewellers at the time. I've added a few close-up photos of those gorgeous borders so look & enjoy! They even have small white enamel 'jewels' mixed into that stunning rococo floral & scrolled foliate pattern. Simply gorgeous and this combination of cobalt & gold is always popular, always elegant.
Very good condition. No chips, cracks or damage to any of the six but one plate does have visible crazing in the the center white area, also visible on the white back of that one plate. I've included a picture of it above but the crazing is much more visible in the picture than to the naked eye. See pictures for measurements.
