The Saddle Plate Series, 'Rejoice' Dinner Plate - by Melody Rose
The Saddle Plate Series, by Melody Rose for the Wallace Collection
'But if the war should end, I rejoice to be ever thine'
This piece is one of four plates that form the latest collaboration between high-end contemporary homeware company, Melody Rose and The Wallace Collection.
Selecting iconography from a decoratively carved fifteenth century European saddle from the Arms and Armouries collection; Melody Rose has reimagined its romantic theme and poetic verse across four beautiful collectable bone china plates.In the original carving two sweethearts have been separated by war and the woman is shown gathering mushrooms, possibly for a love potion or healing brew.
Materials: Made of English fine bone china with a touch of luxurious hand applied 22kt gilding
Made in England
Although pieces from this collection can be placed in a dishwasher, washing by hand is strongly advised to help prevent gilded gold trim from fading over time.
