I thought these belonged on their own page
| Ladies in the Garden Cake/Sweets Plate-
Fanciful image of two Victorian ladies playing with kittens. The
standing woman is dangling a string to encourage one of the kittens to
swipe at the end. The other woman with the fan is both glancing at the
kitten at play and bringing attention to the kitten under her chair. If
you look closely you'll
see the other kitten grasping for life under her chair.
The image has good color and the server is in Lovely to Use Condition. No chips, dings, cracks or crazing. Gold
shows a bit of wear but not nearly what you would expect from a Vintage
piece. This was carefully used.
No Maker's Mark.
Diameter is 9 1/4" and 9
3/4" handle to handle.
| Blue Roses Sweets/Cake Plate - $5.00
This is a very nice sized serving plate. The cut outs are charming, they
resemble little handles. The edges of the pieces are slightly
cut and have a silver line edge.
Lovely Condition. No chips, dings,
cracks or crazing. 10" in diameter.
If you'd like, I also have a Tea Cup Trio in the same pattern
