Worcester Attributed Floral Painted Porcelain Plates, Ca. 1770

Though unmarked, these look like the work of the Worcester Factory as the angled foot rim had the glaze wiped from it before firing. The rim has a basket weave pattern and a single dark brown line. The central portion is decorated with various flowers including roses, pansies, tulips and morning glories.
