This lovely set of 6 dessert plates are salad or dessert size measuring 6" in diameter. They are all in very fine condition with no chips or cracks. Matches a tea set also offered at the same time here on Antiques Inn on Ruby Lane. They show the early turn of the century Arts and Crafts influence that translated into the Art Deco movement. Beautifully painted and heavily treated with gold trim. The mark dates 1915 or later, WWI to early 1920s. The mark is GB Made in Czechoslovakia. Very interesting is that this set of 6 matches the ES PROV SXE Germany tea set but with the wars and countries being taken over, the mark on the dessert plates is Czechoslovakia rather than Germany. In Europe in the early 20th century countries changed hands all the time. This set was made probably just before or just after WWI as the mark includes "Made In" so the dessert dishes were added to the set later.
