Tin Plate: Royal Collection - The Chinese Plate
Elite Tins is a UK company that produces high quality tin ware. Their tin enamel plates feature beautiful designs from museum, gallery and royal collections.
The unusual Gothic - cum - Chinese scenes of this plate are taken from an outstanding Sevres cup and saucer (goblet litron) dating from 1778/79 which is the only known example of its kind.
The scenes may derive from illustrations of a popular novel, poem or play of the time.
