This gorgeous plate features a solid gold center and scalloped rim while the border is deep cobalt blue with raised gold 'jewel's, swags, urns, and foliate designs.
This type of workmanship and quality is usually seen in Minton plates made for Tiffany & Co. but here it is executed in fine fashion by another English maker. The mark (you can enlarge it) is extremely hard to decipher, but it appears to be from a company called the Crown Chelsea company. Few of their patterns have been identified and this one is no exception. I did find another gold encrusted plate, but not nearly as fine as this one!
The plate is in superb condition and measures 10 1/8" in diameter. It certainly ranks up there with the top plates of this type that we have had the pleasure to handle.
