Minton Platter England Mid-19th Century Decorated Roses Pansies Forget Me Not
This is the perfect serving platter for cool drinks in the garden on a summer’s day.
Made by Minton circa 1840, the platter shows delicate roses, forget me knot, and pansies scattered about. The roses are a lovely pink, the pansies the expected yellow and purple, and the forget me not blue with a touch of yellow at the center. The flowers are enhanced by the green leaves surrounding them and the beautiful gilded border filled with flowers and scrolling vines. On the reverse is Minton’s pattern number 9874, written in iron red (it is barely visible in image #10).
