This is a marvelous Mintons cabinet plate in cobalt and gilt against a pure white background. The cobalt is just this side of black - the deepest possible hue. There is an asymmetric design of leaves and buds which covers the whole plate. The effect is very 3 dimensional as the designs are raised, then enameled. There is also gilt around a gently scalloped border. The plate is in beautiful condition and looks as if it was only used as a display piece. Please see the 9.25" plate in this pattern for the full marks. The plate dates from 1877. The diameter is 6.5 inches.
