It is very lucky to find these most beautiful antique dinner or luncheon plates, especially a set of 8 -- nearly impossible. They are made by Minton, in the plum or sakura flower pattern. The plates are meticulously well crafted - each flower is gilt and raised in relief in meticulous details. Beautiful blue ribbon going trough the raised flowers. Scalloped rim, 9 inches wide, Special order made for D.
The marks on the back indicated year of make between1902 and 1912. Other numeric marks included y7412n. Also there is small red number 12 on each plate. Plates are 9 inches across. The condition for the set is great.
I observed no chips, no gilt loss. Only one plate has fine glaze crazing as I have shown on the picture.All in mint condition, rarely used, mostly displayed. Price is for the entire set of 8. I have never seen a beautiful pattern like this, their past glory can only be found on the antique market. The item "Set 8 Enamel Gilt Flower Minton Dinner Luncheon Plates for D.
