This gorgeous set of three dishes is Minton c. 1870. In this design, off-white porcelain provides the background for scenes depicting hummingbirds and butterflies. The creatures are gold leaf on all three plates, while the plants they fly around are painted with hues of red, green, brown, and blue. Each plate has its own distinct fauna, with its bird in a distinct position. The rims of each plate are a golden pattern. This lovely set takes one to an English field or countryside. The plates are in excellent condition and make a wonderful gift for any avid bird collector.
