Set of 12 Viennese Portrait Plates

A rare set of Portrait Plates, having finely painted individual portraits of ladies by Franz Dorfl, with elaborate raised-gold borders. Porcelain, Austrian (Vienna), c. 1902.

Portrait plates were extremely popular in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. It is extremely rare to find such a large set. These would likely have filled a large cabinet, to be displayed as art objects in their own right and were never intended to be used as tabeware.

10.1" diameter
Price: $22,000 /set
