This is a stunning set of 8 hand painted and signed royal doulton plates made for TIFFANY of NEW YORK. Each plate is signed L. Percy which I believe was a signature used by master artist PERCY CURNOCK, as I could find no reference to a royal doulton artist named L. Also since the plates were made for TIFFANY of New York I can only assume that they would want the best artist and Percy was certainly that, specializing in floral painting.
Each plate is individually hand painted and no two are 100% identical. Each has the artist signature on the face of the plate and each has the green royal doulton stamp, the words "TIFFANY NEW YORK" and the numbers RA151a and H240H. The plates are decorated with gold gilding around the painted area and patterned 1/8 in gold gilding around the outer rim. The gold gilding is intact.
The condition of 7 plates is very good. Inspection under black light showed no chips, cracks, crazing or repairs. As well there are no utensil marks on the painted area. The 8 th plate has a 4" very tight hairline on the back of the plate which does not come through to the front save for 1" that can be seen upon close inspection and does not detract from the visual impact. Each plate is 9 inches in diameter and the 8 plates weigh a combined 7 lbs 4 oz.
