This gorgeous 19 th C French dessert set features botanical central decoration, each uniquely hand painted with a different bouquet of mixed flowers. The composition is detailed and the combination of colors and species creates light and cheerful subjects. The plates are bordered with a "peony pink" border, outlined in gold. These were custom ordered and each plate is embellished with an "EA" monogram, elegantly painted in gold. There are also 2 compotes, one tall for fruit and one low and flat for cookies.
The condition is amazing and these would make both a lovely display and the perfect dessert plates with which to end the meal. Made in France Ca. 1870's.
