A fabulous and rare set of 12 Mintons artist signed dinner plates with hand painted borders, trimmed in acid etched gold. What makes these plates special is the subtle variation of nautical scenes which surround the borders depicting different seasons, weather and different times of day. They were masterfully painted by the renown Minton artist James Edwin Dean, famous for his maritime themed subjects. The scenes vary subtly, yet the colors are eye-catching and the variations are captivating.
The plates are perfect to use, with clear centers yet highly decorative and appealing.
These were retailed by R, Briggs in Boston, as close to the ocean as you can get!
