      Hi, VT, your Doulton cabinet plates are exquisite and difficult to find. You have such an eclectic, beautiful collection.

      Since I do this all the time, I am sure that you were thinking one thing, but typed another. The artist is "Henry" Mitchell, not "George." However, I can't see the signature on your photos under the dogs to confirm this. Henry Mitchell's dogs were in the manner of, and after, Sir Edwin Landseer's paintings.

      "Mitchell Henry
      1893–1908 [service at Doulton]
      A gifted painter of animals, Mitchell established his reputation at Mintons and other companies before joining Doulton. He also specialised in landscapes and hunting scenes."
      Courtesy of Pottery Histories "Doulton (Burslem) Artists"

      "Henry T Mitchell, born in Burslem, Staffordshire, joined Minton c.1860, and exhibited at International Exhibitions in the latter half of the 19th Century, gaining medals at Paris (1867) and Vienna (1873). He joined Doulton c.1893 and became widely known as an exceptional painter of animals and landscapes."
      Courtesy of Bonhams:

      "Henry Mitchell specialised in faithful copies of Landseer subjects. This particular plate is after Landseer's painting 'Laying down the Law', now in the Sculpture Gallery at Chatsworth. Queen Victoria is known to have purchased sets from Minton with Mitchell's Landseer subjects for use at Balmoral and Sandringham. The initials LMC in the cartouche may indicate that this plate was part of a royal commission, made for the marriage of Queen Victoria's son Prince Arthur of Connaught to Princess Louise Margaret of Connaught on 13 March 1879."

      Solver, Many many many thanks for all of your wonderful help and information! I really do appreciate everything that you have done to help me on numerous occasions. I do make the "Mitchell" mistake all of the time. I was also doing this in a hurry this AM. Thank you for the correction and the wonderful links!!!

      solver, H. Mitchell signature is on these plates but difficult to spot initially

      solver, Your comments mean a lot to me, for I suspect that you are truly knowledgeable and have the expertise that I lack. I just know when I like something!
