The plates are of typical circular form, with slightly recessed centres and upward-flared edges. Two of the plates are light pink, one is purple, one white, one green and one blue. They feature central gilt medallions which are decorated with red and green enamel stylised floral and wavy motifs. These medallions are encircled by white enamel wavy patterns. The plates’ outer edges are edged with gilt bands which are similarly decorated with rows of green, red and blue undulating motifs. The gilt bands are decorated, on their inner edges, with white enamel winding forms and with white dots on their outer sides.
One plate is signed ‘Brocard a Paris’ for the famous French 19th-Century glass-maker, Philippe-Joseph Brocard. Brocard revived medieval Islamic enamelling techniques and created exquisite imitations of Middle and Far Eastern glassware. Mosque lamps made by Brocard can be viewed in major collections across the world, including the Victoria & Albert Museum and the British Museum in London, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
