Presented for sale is an splendid 7-piece dessert service made by Bishop & Stonier, Hanley, England, circa 1878-1891. The set consists of one tazza and six dessert plates. The service is decorated with a fluted edge and a wide cobalt border swirled with gilt panels. A bouquet of flowers, of different varieties, is painted on the center of each plate and accented with gilt sprays. The compote is supported with a kneeling cherub on a pillow form base.

The firm of Bishop & Stonier started in 1851 by Hanley potters and Frederick Bishop, a lawyer. The company grew quickly and exported a large number of the wares to America. They were known to have provided much of the china for the ill-fated Titanic and many other British liners of the day. In 1933, the firm was absorbed by George Jones & Sons.

The set is in excellent condition with little to no loss of gilt or enamel on most pieces. It is a beautiful set for cabinet or shelf display.
