In keeping with the set of Minton dinner plates that have matching borders item #3051, I am listing a set of 8 dessert plates which could only be described as true works of art. Each plate is uniquely painted in polychrome enamels depicting various real life scenes of life in England at the end of the 19th century. Please see the amazing detail and complexity of the subjects all framed by the brilliant turquoise blue border highlighted with Neoclassical red medallions. Also retailed exclusively by Wilhelm and Graef, New York, these are dated 1892. All in excellent condition with the exception of one with a few lines of crazing. Please see the Minton dinner plates with the matching borders.
