This set of 12 dessert plates was produced in the U.S. by Lenox in 1905. The monogram of HR stands for Helen Roebling, daughter of Ferdinand Roebling, prominent industrialist and developer in Trenton, New Jersey. The family was instrumental in the building of the Brooklyn Bridge and the manufacture of iron cable. The plates are artist signed by acclaimed artist William Morley. These fine quality porcelain plates measure 9 1/8 inches in diameter. They are exquisitely hand painted with delicate pastel colored tea roses in all stages of bloom. No two plates are exactly the same. Morley was a most talented artist who painted with love of roses. They blend so well on the slightly ivory colored porcelain. A thin line of gold dentil trim finishes the edges. You can almost smell the fragrance. They seem so real. Condition: One plate has an old restoration on the back that cannot be seen from the front. These plates have been gently used and there is slight evidence of that. They have historical significance of the Roebling family.
