The image below is from the National Archives who describe it thus:

Ornamental design for a dinner service.

This design is usually referred to as the 'Naturalist' service. These striking designs were prepared for Minton by the artist WS Coleman [William Stephen Coleman]. Minton paid Coleman a fee of £200 for the designs. Using the retail price index £200 in 1870 would be worth over £12,000 today. Compared with average earnings in 1870, £200 would be worth over £100,000, a significant amount to be paid for one design. This design is illustrated Joan Jones Minton, The First Two Hundred Years of Design & Production, Swan Hill Press, 1993, page 67.
