Set of 32 Wedgwood creamware dinner plates with a thistle design. These English creamware dinner plates date to the late 19th-century. They have a lovely, simple design decorated with flowering thistle boughs done in the Japonisme style. Japonisme is a French term coined in the late nineteenth century to describe the craze for Japanese art and design in the West. Japonisme involved Western arts with a Japanese aesthetic focused on asymmetrical compositions, and elements of color and line. The rediscovery of Japanese art and design had an almost incalculable effect on Western art.
The back of each dish is stamped "Wedgwood."
Made circa 1880.
Dimensions: The plates measure a generous 9.85 inches in diameter.
Price: $1700 per dozen (These dishes can be purchased as a group or by the dozen).
