This listing is for four (4) royal worcester hand-painted fruit plates. Each is signed by E. The plates are richly decorated with gold gilding and raised white jewels. The gold gilding is intact and no jewels are missing.Two of the plates are in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, crazing or repairs. The 3rd plate is in very good condition save for a tiny nick to the outer gold gilded edge. The 4th plate has been professionaly repaired and looks very good on the surface. Each plate is stamped with a gold royal worcester mark, 3 for 1937 and 1 for 1936. These plates were made for retailer Henry Birks and Sons ltd (Canadian equivalent to Tiffany's) and each plate has that mark stamped on it. There is also a gold gilded decoration on the raised ring on the bottom.
I have never seen this feature before on a royal worcester plate. The plates measure 8 1/2 inch (21.5 cm) in diameter and collectively weigh approx 4 lbs.
