This is one of the more beautiful sets of Doulton Burslem dessert plates I have seen. Each one is hand painted in the Aesthetic Movement/Art Nouveau style of painting. The shaped rims frame the off-center floral subjects on a matte ivory ground and trimmed in a softly applied "Florentine Gold" finish. Signed on the back with her initials, these were decorated by one of Doulton's master painters Fannie Allen. Each plate depicts a different botanical subject subtly outlined in raised gold in a realistically depicted colors. These are true works of art and should be prominently displayed. Ca 1900, Excellent Condition!
