This is a rare set of a dozen beautiful 18th century Italian Ginori Doccia porcelain dishes decorated with the colorful porcellana antica modello Tulipano pattern (the Tulip pattern). The pattern shows tulips along with other flowers painted in green, blue, yellow, iron red, and purple (see images). The gently lobed border is painted with lovely flower sprigs. The pattern was among the most popular in
18th century Italy.
Setting a table with these dishes will make a beautiful statement of Italian elegance and tradition.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art has in their collection a pair of Doccia Ginori wine coolers in this pattern* (see details below).

Background of Ginori Doccia:
The Ginori Porcelain manufactory, at Doccia, near Florence, was founded in 1735 by Marchese Carlo Ginori. In 1896 the name of the business was changed to Richard-Ginori. Today the company is still known as Richard-Ginori. In the 18th century the factory used tin glaze to create a milk white surface which served as an effective background for a palette of strong painted colors (see images). This process was unique among European porcelian manufacturers, and gave the Doccia porcelains a unique feel and look.
