This Minton dessert service is a stunning example of English porcelain craftsmanship. Intricate apple-green lattice designs are enhanced with gilding. The compotes’ feet and dishes’ rims are reticulated, further contributing to the set’s delicacy. The reticulated shape is known as the “Devon” shape. The most special feature of this service, however, are the meticulously rendered ornithological scenes, which point to a 19th-century spirit of scientific classification.
