Each piece is grey and white and heavily adorned with gold work but what is truly remarkable about each piece is the elaborate hand painted floral bouquets & sprays on the centres and rims by the renowned artist F. Howard. Various colours and different shades add a wonderful depth to each piece.
Signed: F. Howard.
Marked: Printed crown mark used between 1891-1920, England, Coalport, A.D. 1750, 6919/c.
Large Compote Measures: 18 inches long x 9 inches wide x 8 3/4 inches high.

Condition: Considering all 17 pieces only 3 have noteworthy condition.
