Four stunning little antique crème brûlée dishes with under plates by BOOTHS in the “Or Repousse” pattern. Made in England, circa pre-1912. The elegant pattern is deep cobalt blue with generous gold gilding.
Back marked in frame with crown, “BOOTHS SILICON CHINA ENGLAND ‘OR REOUSSE’”. Additional numbers outside of framed back mark.
The dishes measure 4-1/8″ across top edge to edge. The flat rim is 1/2″ wide. They sit 1-1/4″ high. The under plates are 5-1/8″ across.
Condition is very good. There are no chips or cracks to any of the eight pieces. Crème brûlée dishes show some discoloration on the inside surface. Slight crazing as expected.
So beautiful and elegant. Exceedingly difficult to find.
