A lovely set of four hand painted mid 19th century William Brownfield Staffordshire dessert plates with turquoise borders rimmed with gilt stippling. Each plate is hand painted with a different bouquet of flowers in the center.

William Brownfield’s ceramic factory was started in 1837 and became one of the biggest of the Staffordshire potteries. It continued to be run by the Brownfield’s until the late 19th century when it finally closed. At their peek they employed over 500 workers and became prolific exporters. In 1871, they finally added a high quality porcelain body to their line and began to produce distinguished tableware and novelty ornaments.

The plates are in excellent condition with minor enamel and gilt wear commensurate with age. 18th and 19th century English hand painted china is distinguishable for its artistry combined with a rich background palette, and the way the enamels seems to sit upon the china, beautifully demonstrated in this stunning set.

Size: 9 1/8” Diameter.
