This set of 12 porcelain luncheon plates was produced in England by Cauldon in the late 19th century. They were made especially for Tiffany in New York. The plates measure 8 3/4 inches in diameter and 3/4 of an inch deep. The rim of the plate is thicker and raised in order to accentuate the decoration. The Centers of the plates are slightly indented. There are cobalt blue oval indentations outlined with beaded gold alternating with tiny hand painted roses and forget-me-nots on the rims. The colors are vibrant and the painting is
intricate. There is more raised gold trim on the cobalt band as well as more beaded gilding. The centers contain a medallion repeating the decorations on the rim. At first glance you don’t know if you are seeing ribbons or rainbows. Wouldn’t you know something this marvelous would have been made for Tiffany?
