About this object

This set of 44 plates forms part of an elaborate dessert service. A pale pink ground highlighted with gold rococo scrolls and areas of white decorated with polychrome flowers distinguishes these pieces. In the center of each plate, against a white ground, is a spray of flowers surrounded by a floral wreath. The pink scalloped rim has three three panels reserved in white, each containing a cluster of flowers and flanked by small sections of lattice and floral sprays in raised gold.
