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.

This set of 12 crystal plates was produced in England by Webb around 1900. They are not signed but this is a known pattern Webb used. They measure 9 inches in diameter. The crystal is hand blown and quite substantial in weight. There is an indentation 1 3/4 inches from the rim to capture dressing from over flowing on the table. The entire surface of each plate is deeply hand engraved with an ornate pattern. Forms of plants and foliage, pinecones and flowers, and winding branches are skillfully executed in glass. Workmanship such as this is a lost art. How wonderful it is that the set has survived. Condition: There are minor, shallow scratches on the bottom of some of the plates.
