19th Century Minton Ornithological Porcelain Dessert

$2,900per set

About

A partial dessert service by Minton, hand-painted with ornithological scenes after designs by Joseph Smith. The service comprises two small compotes and four dessert dishes. This Minton dessert service is a stunning example of English porcelain craftsmanship. Intricate apple-green lattice designs are enhanced with gilding. The compotes’ feet and dishes’ rims are reticulated, further contributing to the set’s delicacy. The reticulated shape is known as the “Devon” shape. The most special feature of this service, however, are the meticulously rendered (and labeled) ornithological scenes, which point to a 19th-century spirit of scientific classification. One dish features the impressed wheel date mark for 1872. Dimensions: Compotes - 6 1/2 in. Dm x 4 1/2 in. H (11.8 cm H x 16 cm D) Dishes - 9 1/4 in. Dm x 3/4 in. H (2 cm H x 23 cm D) Condition: Excellent. Some light staining to the body of one plate.
