Two most pretty bone china, blue and white bread, cake or sandwich plates with tabbed handles. The pattern is called Grecian Dancing Maiden and was registered as RD 703050 in 1924. The ladies are depicted dancing in a pretty frieze around the gilded rims. The frieze is bordered by two black patterns.
Crown Staffordshire was established in1889 at the Minerva Works, Fenton in Staffordshire. (The eagle-eyed will notice that one of the backstamps says 'Estd 1801' - this is a bit cheeky. It was in fact the the Minerva Works that were established in 1801 not Crown Staffordshire itself ! )
Plate x 2 - 10.125 inches | 255mm incl tabbed handles
There is a flake to the underside of one and some rubbing to the gilding on the tab handles of the other.
In very good vintage condition - looking amazing just a few years away from their 100th birthday !
Will make a stunning display.
Backstamps include Maker's mark and the 1924 RD number 703050.
