These just may be the perfect dessert plates! Pure Mottahedeh- the luscious fruit decoration, fluted pie-crust edge, beautiful white porcelain… Ah, heck- dessert, breakfast, salad, cheese- whatever the meal or course, these vintage plates fill the bill! The set of eight plates include plum, cherry, apple, pear, peach (2), apricot, and strawberry designs.
Though these plates are vintage, they are without chips, breaks, repairs or crazing.
Having been in business for 75 years, Mottahedeh holds licenses to make reproductions and adaptations from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Colonial Williamsburg, Winterthur, Monticello, Historic Charleston, Historic Natchez, and the National Trust. They have made china for the President, the State Department and for the Diplomatic Corps.
Mottahedeh makes the classics; time honored decorative accessories and tableware. Primarily the patterns are based on Chinese Export for the West, Early European and Chinese designs. What makes their products special are the unusual, elegant shapes, very clear beautiful materials, complex and vibrant colors with hand-painting mostly in gold, and that everything has a story.
