Pair of late 18th century Doccia porcelain plates.
A pair of porcelain dinner plates with a narrow border of blue dots in gilt ovals encircled by gilt lines, a narrow gilt floral border at the inside of the rim centering a large delicate letter, “N” composed of garlands of hand painted flowers. Both borders are well known on Doccia porcelain and while numerous factories did initials and single letters so did Doccia. The porcelain is typically slightly grey and creamy. 9 ½ inches (24 cm) diameter.
Condition: Excellent. No chips, cracks, hairlines or repairs. Very minor knife scratches. Beautiful painting of the flowers.
Will discount for those with first or last name beginning with letter N.
