These 3 hand-painted porcelain dessert platters were produced by the Carl Thieme Saxony Porcelain Company in Dresden, Germany circa 1900. Each plate is reticulated (pierced) at the rim in 4 places, and the plate is delicately, expertly and liberally painted with a variety of colorful florals. Hand-painted gold accents embellish the outer and inner rims, as well as the platter’s center with leaf, dotting, and latticework motifs. The center of each plate features a lovely bouquet of flowers encircled by a colorful floral wreath. (Each plate features a different bouquet.)
The reverse side has a blue underglaze SP monogram. It’s also marked with Dec. 478 (pattern number), Déposé (registered) and The Bailey Banks & Biddle Company Philadelphia (for which it was especially made for).
