The Sepia Print with Accents of Sponge Gold Gilding Pronounce This Absolutely Wonderful Wild Life Scene on both the Platter and Plates. This Stunning Game Set Was Made In Europe and Is Of German Rather Than French Origin. It Is Transfer Print On A Porcelain Medium.

COMMENT: Class Galore! This Wonderful Art Nouveau Game Set Is Reminiscent Of The Victorian Era In Its Exuberance Of Wealth & Class. It was customary for the wealthy classes to serve their game upon special platters and plates when feasting with honored guests. However, today such sets are collected more for their beauty and display rather than for functionality. Such A Set Would Make A Fantastic Display In Ones Dining Room!

CONDITION: The platter is in exquisite condition! There is no wear to the sponge gold gilding. There are no knife or fork scratches. It has no chips, no cracks, no stains, and no restoration!

As for the plates, they are in fine condition as well; however some do show a little loss of the sponge gold gilding which is normal for porcelain of this vintage especially when they were originally intended for use at the table. After all, these pieces are approximately 130 years old.
