Antique Hand Painted Gilt Encrusted Copeland Dessert Plates. Never seen before, and probably I will never see a set like this again in my lifetime. So fabulous, these are the most ornate, gilt encrusted hand painted plates with every single design element we love. Every single plate is different making each a one-of-a-kind work of art. Made by Copeland, England, especially for Gilman Collamore & Co. - a very high-end luxury shop rivaling Tiffany & Co. and Black, Starr & Frost - in 1890.
Stunning design, with hand painted heavy gilt embellishments, hand-painted pink roses, a rose bouquet floral center, on a pristine white molded design. With hand painted polychrome enamel decoration, these plates take your breath away for either display or table settings. Blindingly beautiful, a once-in-a-life-time find - the best!
- 12 plates measuring 8-3/4".
