These dessert plates exhibit an exotic eastern influence, from the Persian blue ground and beautifully painted stork, to the depiction of ornamental flowering branches in a blue and white pot. The blue glaze, a famous bright turquoise color that Mintons, a venerable English firm, became known for, is often called “Persian blue,“ in recognition of the Persian artisans who first mastered this brilliant coloration hundreds of years earlier.
