This is very rare and beautiful. Bone China Dinner set for 8 (eight). Made by WEDGWOOD in Florentine Gold pattern. There are few patterns that live up to the richness of Florentine Gold; first introduced in 1931 on a fine bone china body and characterized by an ornate border intricately detailed with a cacophony of mystical creature and fantastical flora. The collection features a wealth of delicately hand-rendered motifs set against the clarity of white, fine bone china.A truly glorious collection with a heritage stretching back seven decades. The pieces are hallmarked on the bottom with Wedgwood black and gold stamp.
8 (eight) Dinner Plates - 10 3/4 in diameter. Salad Plates - 8 1/8 in diameter. 8 (eight) Bread and Butter/Dessert Plates - 6 in diameter. Coffee/Tea Cups - 4 1/8" in diameter at the rim and 2 1/4" tall.
8 (eight) Saucers for the cups - 5 3/4 in diameter. It will make a wonderful gift or will be a great addition to any vintage china collection.The set is in very good vintage condition with no cracks or crazing. Could have some minimal utensils marks and some very minimal damage to the gold, if any. Please refer to the pictures. Actual color may differ from the photo due to lighting conditions.
I have more pieces of this pattern. Just imagine your special table set with these beautiful pieces. A party makes an elegant statement when set with antique porcelain. Wedgwood Florentine is probably the pattern with the most variations that we are aware of. The main design element of the Wedgwood Florentine patterns are the griffins which surround the border of the pattern.Griffins are mythological creatures which were associated with heraldry, that is the designing of royal and noble coats of arms. It is therefore easy to understand why this imagery would be invoked by designers seeking to impart a royal flavor to dinnerware. The variations tend to be mostly of color including black, blue, turquoise, red, yellow, green, gold and more. There are also some patterns that have fruit urn centers and other that are plain white.
