These striking Early (First Period) Minton Bone China 8-7/8" plates are in excellent condition. Each is marked with Minton's first recorded mark, the painted crossed L Sèvres-style symbol, and the pattern number 865. They date c 1814.
The Chinoiserie design of over-painted enamels and gilding is bright. Each plate may have a bit of rubbing to the design, or a slight nick to the foot rim or back edge. Each plate rings when tapped. On the whole, this rare set is in remarkably fine condition and displays beautifully.
The price listed is for the set of six.
