The Price is for TWO 6 7/8" Plates:
From the late 1800's, this Alfred Meakin of England transfer ware pattern is named "Dresden Hopfen". Hopfen is the German word for Hops, the flowering vine used in brewing beer, and also the leafy vine in this pattern. Dresden is a German city where the Hopfen plant flourished as well as being known for the home of fine china and pottery. The transfer pattern is a grayish color (almost grayish green) trimmed in black and highlighted with gold. The pattern is very similar to the Alfred Meakin "Oban" and a few other patterns around that time period. The Meakin mark is a version of the globe backstamp used from 1875 to 1891. The 6 7/8" dessert size plates are without nicks, chips, or breaks. They have typical light crazing that is not unsightly and otherwise Excellent Condition.
