To find a set of six hand painted plates is a wonderful find and makes a beautiful table setting. The artist must have been a true rose lover to make such a realistic rendition of these beautiful flowers. He has painted wonderful pink roses using just a hint of white and darker hues to give emphasis to the petals. The artist has painted one deep red rose amongst the softer pink roses that absolutely jumps off the plate. He has added a few lavender rose leaves on the background that blend in nicely with the blue ground. He has placed this wonderful spray of colorful roses on a background of soft pastel gold, yellows, and blues. The roses on one side connect with another grouping on the other side by brown thorny branches. The plates are completed with a nice golden rim. One plate has a rim bump that was touched-up, and was re-fired with gold. The gold gilding was applied and re-fired due to the color matching actually; please see pictures. There are no hairlines or cracks; manufacturing anomalies may exist, the occasional tiny iron speck, dust 'bump' in the glaze, etc.
