This complete set of 12 porcelain/bone china place card settings were produced in Staffordshire, England circa 1905. They would have been purchased in this large set of 12 by a grand Edwardian house...not quite on the scale of Downton Abbey but certainly for by an affluent home who entertained in large numbers. They would make THE most unique setting for your summer wedding's top table...so, so pretty!!!
Crown Staffordshire potteries manufactured their bone china wares from their factory at the Minerva Work, Park Street, Fenton, Staffordshire. This matching set features hand colored floral sprays, with extensive gilt decoration on a scaled blue ground. Each piece taking influence from the 18th Century porcelain patterns found on pieces produced by Worcester porcelain. As seen by the original gold label to the base of one holder; this set was purchased new from the luxury porcelain retailer Thomas Goode & Co who is based in Mayfair London. Thomas Goode & Co was founded in 1827 and recognized as one of the finest porcelain retailers in the world, a Royal Warrant holder supplying porcelain to the Royal Family.
