This is a set of 12 Coalport fish plates, 9" in diameter, all matching in style with 4 visibly signed by the artist, J. H. Plant.  Plant was a painter at Coalport  from the 1880s to c.1900.  The Coalport backstamp on the plates was in use from c.1891 - c.1920. This wonderful pattern (X981) features raised-gold decoration on the rims, a blush of pink around the centers, and gold gadroon edges. All this in addition to the charming portraits of the fish themselves!  The name of each fish is painted onto the back of the plates.

The fish represented include: Bream, Pike, Salmon, Char, Mackerel, Barbel, Perch, Trout, Roach (this has a blemish in the glaze and a scuff mark, shown in a close up), Cod Fish, Red Mullet (there are a few shallow chips to the backside base, shown at the end of this sequence), and Carp.

Please note that there is some stacking wear to the gold at the inner verge on many of the plates, and wear on the outside rims, but absolutely no rim chips or cracks on any plates.
