Marchese Carlo Ginori (1702-1757) founded the Doccia Porcelain Manufactory near Florence, Italy in 1735. The early factory production was soft paste with a grayish body. Early designs were influenced by Chinese stylized floral motifs in polychrome or red iron oxide glazes. The flower designs often had peculiar trunk-like stamens, as in the flowers in this particular set. The factory evolved and is still owned to this day by the Ginori family. Richard Ginori porcelains are among the finest quality worldwide.
Recently acquired from the estate of a prominent Italian family. The set, as per the pictures, is still in Italy, packing and shipping fees will apply.
