Hand painted dessert set

This dessert set is a new addition to my collection.  It consists of a 12.5" comport and 6 8.25" dessert plates.  They are painted in MM pattern which features fruit and flowers.  Shades of pink and brown are used.  Whilst the original designs, by Truda Carter,  date from the 1930s this set was produced and painted in the mid 1950s.  At this time the patterns were redesigned, losing some of their crispness.
