A soft paste porcelain dinner plate unmarked, but probably Minton. In the “feuille de choux” pattern with hand painted flowers, blue accents and heavy gilding. These knock offs of 18th century Sevres were popular from the mid 19th century (c.1850) onwards and Minton made many of the very good ones. 9 ½ inches (24 cm) diameter.

Condition: Slight discoloration on bottom. No chips, cracks, or repairs.
The teapot stand is an attractive shape with a nice contrast between the painting and molding.
