Painted Chinaware became popular in the late Victorian era, starting in about 1880 and reached its peak in the very early 1900s. These pieces were handed down to us by our grandmothers, both of whom were born in the 1880s. They are certainly antique and likely were acquired by those two ladies in the first decade of the 1900s. Plates are in excellent condition.

The blank or unpainted pieces were imported, mostly from France, Germany, or Austria. Most were painted in America but some made a detour to China and Japan to take advantage of those two countries’ long traditions in painting beautiful floral masterpieces.

The style featured soft, color-washed pastel palettes and backgrounds with floral motifs predominating in the overall look. The type of paints used were translucent, giving the pieces their softness, and, after being painted in multiple layers, the plates were fired to fuse the glaze with the paints for a feeling of depth in the images.

The plate stands used to prop up the plates for photography are not included in the sale; they are readily available in any full-scale hobby or arts & crafts store.
