Antique French Blue & Gold Porcelain Dinner Plates Decorated by Wheeling. Growing up with such amazing surroundings at my Grandparents home, I dont think we had any idea of how special and rarified an atmosphere it really was.My Mother & Grandmother both loved to set a beautiful and special table, always varying, depending on the occasion and time of year. Since our first summer party is dedicated to my Mother, we will celebrate her life with a gathering of family members & friends & dress the table in her favorite color blue. This is a gorgeous set of antique French porcelain dinner plates decorated by the Wheeling Decorating Co. This company was famous at the turn of the 19. Century for decorating china and porcelain that was made in other countries, during the latter part of the 19. Century & first part of the 20. It operated from 1869 to 1969.
They are famous for their elaborate etchings & gilded designs. Their work is marked with a horizontal diamond logo &/or a stamp with Wheeling Decorating Co. On the back of each plate. For my Mothers party, we have set the table with a set of 12 large antique porcelain dinner plates in French blue & encrusted with gold.
The center of each plate is pure white surrounded by a gold design and a solid inch of gold; this is followed outward by a beautiful French blue with gold etchings and finished with a gold etched edge. Even though these plates are over 100 years old, they are in excellent condition & seldom used since my Grandmother had over 5 dozen sets of dinners plates each set a different pattern.If you would value having these gorgeous plates for your own use, we would be very pleased for you to have them.
