I have discovered, or at least become much more aware, of the shell-edged plates made by Wedgwood.

Most often on their creamware, the delicate moulding on the edge of plate resembles a shell.  

I have a number of these hand-painted fruit plates and the complement the navy edged shell plates and the delicate creamware raised-paste dinner plates beautifully. The berry-filled turquoise venetian glass compotes add another layer of colour.

I’m now on the lookout for them and am scouting eBay and Replacements.com.  I was lucky enough to pick up a full set 12 dinner and salad plates of the cream-on-cream with raised-paste flowers on the shoulder. So far I’ve found only six of the dessert plates with the navy edging, but am continuing to look, Right now I’m coveting a pattern with a delicate purple transferware pattern on the body and shoulder of the plate, so stay tuned.
