Here is a set of continental plates painted in an exuberant style with lots of verve. They are hard-paste porcelain, which indicates a revivalist maker, possibly in France and possibly around 1850-1900. The dentil gilding on the edges gives them the feel of 18th-century pieces, and specifically Worcester, Chelsea or Derby. Flowers of many kinds seemingly tumble over one another on the front, along with an occasional butterfly and insect. There is some light wear to the decoration, much of the gilding on the rims has been touched up, and one plate has a very faint hairline across the middle (shown). The letters LI are impressed into the bottom of each plate. On the shelf they would make a great impression. They are eight and three-quarters inches across.
