13 Minton Pate-sur-Pate Service Plates, Artist Signed W. Key

About

Fantastic set of 13 vintage, Minton, Stoke-on-Trent, England pate-sur-pate service or dinner plates. Pattern called "Exotic Birds." These plates feature 22-karat gold encrusting and elaborate raised paste gold with 3 red pate-sur-pate reserves illustrating birds. One plaque on each plate is signed "W. Key" for the artist William Key. The foot rim is gilded and there is a gilder mark "R" on reverse. We have more plates available in this highly sought after pattern from Minton. William Key worked at Minton from 1900-1960, eventually rising to become Decorating Manager and Head Gilder. Minton pattern: H5103 Pate-sur-pate is a French term meaning "paste on paste". It is a method of porcelain decoration in which a relief design is created on an unfired, unglazed body by applying successive layers of white slip or liquid clay with a brush. While the effect is somewhat similar to other types of relief decoration, unlike Jasperware,for which Wedgwood is famous, a mold is not used, and the artist is able to achieve translucency. The pate sur pate technique was developed in France. The technique was perfected at Minton by Louis Solon, a French emigrant and former Sevres artist. Email to inquire about our other pate-sur-pate plate sets. Viewing in our New York City showroom is available by appointment.
