Royal Doulton dessert plate, painted by Harry Taylor

A bone china plate, decorated with a crescent moon and blossoms. A circular foot ring rises to a concave upper face, with a deep well and moulded border occupying one half of the plate in the shape of a bearded man within a crescent moon. The well is decorated with branches of pink blossoms and green and mauve leaves and gold scrolling clouds on a pale blue background. The moon is painted pale yellow, with gold highlights and scrolling gold hair and beard. The decoration is edged with a single gold band of raised dots and the rim is edged in a gold.
