Dentelle Fringe Plate


1920? Brown and white plate 9" in diameter with an open-dentelle fringe showing DS at its center. 

This plate is marked by its open dentelles around the outer rim, with an arched opening in each dentelle.  Inside at the center is a recognizable image of DS.  It is exactly the image that appears on Minton tiles of the same period, whether they are brown or blue.  The choice of a moment to depict is good because the dog has just lost his piece of meat, and it has not yet entered the water to be lost forever.
