These porcelain plates were produced in England in the first half of the 19th century. We attribute them to Coalport. They are 9 3/8 inches in diameter. The decoration is copied from French Sevres factory. There are two types of hummingbirds that are beautifully hand painted. The representation is true to the species of hummingbird. Each plate has a wide, celeste blue enameled border. There is ornate raised gold trim with enamel jeweled accents. These are splendid cabinet plates to treasure for generations. They may be purchased separately. Just choose A or B. A is the plate on the left and B is on the right of the first photo. Condition: There is slight wear to gilding on the rims and high points on the plates. It is not visible looking straight at the plates.
