We have here another wonderful find in these Two Exquisite hand-painted Victorian Lace Plates as follows:
9″ Diameter – Soft Green Open work Edge Plate with raised features, punctuated with three pink blossoms. Center features a delicate bouquet of colorful blossoms. This beautiful Antique Plate still bears the remnants of a Maker Mark at its underside. We are not able however, to identify it from the remaining traces.
8 1/2″ Diameter – Lace Edge Plate featuring a lovely geometric lace pattern such as rectangles, triangles and a Diamond design. The plate’s center is highlighted with delicate sprigs of Lilacs and their lush green leaves. The Lace Edge is further highlighted by touches of gold in several areas. We do not see a maker mark at its underside.
These beautiful plates are in lovely Antique condition. We have not found any chips, cracks, repairs or crazing. However, the Lace Plate with the Lilac Flowers does have some kind of manufacturing irregularity as can be noted in the last picture. We have greatly magnified it so that it would be visible.They are quite a treasure – and should be fantastic additions to your collection. They can only continue increasing in value as more and more time goes by bringing you much pleasure as well as many compliments.
