Absolutely gorgeous and amazing set. I have not come across one like it.The gold gilt detail is stunning accenting the ornate fluted pattern to the mold. Condition for the set is quite amazing!
I don't think this set was used as it retains almost all of the gold and enamels and appears to have little to no use marks. I have looked over it carefully and find 2 plates with small issues. The violet 8 inch plate has tiny hairline (1/8 inch) on underside rim but could possibly be just a scratch. It also has a small nick to the foot rim.One of the yellow evening primrose plates has 2 nicks.. One on rim at one of the green scallops. It is small but on top.
Also another flake on underside near the first one I mention. The damage is not easily noticed and the plate displays well. Please view all the photos as they are part of the description and to appreciate the beautiful work on this set! Would make a fabulous display in a cabinet, table or sideboard or running board!
