19th c. Coalport Aesthetic Movement Dessert Set w/ Birds

SOLD

This is an exceptional and beautifully decorated dessert service. Each plate has an unusually shaped rim with cobalt blue, gold and white raised enamel "jewels". Exemplifying the Aesthetic Movement at it's finest, these 2-color cobalt birds perched on bamboo shoots are the base ground with all-over gold overlay, creating a strong and bright contrast. Wonderful for display or totally usable for a dynamic table setting. The plates measure 9 1/2" in diameter, and the stand is 4 1/2" in height.  c. 1880's
