Vintage Minton China Pate sur Pate Birds & Raised Gold Dinner/Cabinet Plate (Code 2132)
A fine quality Minton pate-sur-pate dinner plate. This example has three panels with a deep cerise ground each with a classical style vignette of birds. There is elaborate raised gold detail in the Adams taste and gold brocade work with diaper style patterning. One panel has the artists initials - SA. The reverse has the Minton mark in gold along with impressed marks.
In the mid 20th century Minton restarted production of pate-sur-pate which was halted due to war in the early 20th century. We have a similar example which carries a paper price lable which was likely original to the retailing in the 1960's. Adjusting for inflation makes this item around $1800 (£1450) current equivalent when sold. This leads to the reason why these items are so scarce, sales were very limited - and they are actually better value now than they were some 50 years ago whilst being even more exclusive.
Very good order, minimal wear. Beautiful pate-sur-pate work.
