This is a complete 19th century dessert service made by the small and highly respected firm of William Brownfield. Each plate is hand-painted with an orchid specimen, delicately depicted in naturalistic form. The polychrome enamels are framed by a simple cobalt blue border highlighted with raised paste gold allowing the subject to stand out. The four low compotes are perfect for serving and the two tall compotes are an elegant addition for fruit and serving.
Celebrate springtime with this complete service or display it with pride.
