Lovely platters from the Mint

I love the colors of these platters and the lively way that plants were treated. Can you see the knot in the stems in one of the platters? Do you think this guy was pleased with his portrait? Sadly, I did not make notes as to country of origin or dates. These are majolica or faiance (spelling?). You can pronouce it MAY-O-LICA or MAH-JOL-ICA, either one works for me!

Again, at the Mint Museum. Gosh, just think of all the pieces awaiting you. Go take a tour and see some great pots!
