Fabulous early Minton porcelain dating to c1840-50 and in the famous Sevres style of Joseph Wareham. Excellent condition....amazingly. No chips, cracks or repairs. Fabulous blue rim with raised gilt. Birds are fantastic as I hope the photographs convey. The plates measure about 9 3/8" diameter each, compote is about 9" diameter and 4 3/4" tall. There are marks but so diminutive they are too small to make out....I also see a few faint impressions here and there around the borders, but nothing can be made out. A truly remarkable and early set.
