This is Copeland at it's best! The 16 piece dessert service is a show-stopper with floral centers, hand painted in vibrant, bright and botanically acurate representations. The gilded petal shaped rims are embellished with gold petals over a deep cobalt blue ground. This shaped " frame" provides a dramatic contrast to the clean white ground and bright renditions of your favorite flowers, tulips, crocus, fuchsia, anenomes etc. What a perfect dessert service and imagine how beautifully it would display!
Each piece is uniquely decorated as are the 4 compotes- 2 low and 2 taller. These are dated 1884 and all in excellent condition with one minor rim flake that is hardly noticeable from the top. No structural flaws, no crazing and the gilding is also in amazing condition! Please enlarge the pictures to see the details!
