This is an amazing hand painted set of cabinet plates. The artist has chosen beautiful scalloped rim plates with wavy edges. He has used a soft pink background that recedes down onto the well of the plates blending it into a creamy white. He has added stems of beautiful richly colored flowers on each well of the plates and has used raised gold to outline the petals buds and leaves. I had a friend help me determine what type of flowers these possibly could be. Our guess is: On two plates, the flowers look very much like water lilies; however, the leaves don't really look like they belong with the flowers. One plate looks like cyclamen; one like poppies, tiger lily, nasturtium and wild roses. The artist has painted the wide rims with gold completing his phenomenal artwork. The plates are not marked by the artist or the manufacturer. When this type of artwork was in large sets the manufactures did not always stamp their goods nor have artists sign their work. This piece is in excellent condition with no chips or cracks. It has minimal gold wear to the some of the rims. Manufacturing anomalies may exist, the occasional tiny iron speck, dust 'bump' in the glaze, etc.
We have found this mold in the Decorative Plates book by Jim & Susan Harran on PG 69, therefore we feel we can attribute this to Doulton Burslem.
