Distinguishing Characteristics - Most Interesting About The Piece: This is a very nice plate with a nice design. This is a beautiful and solid small plate weighing almost 9 ounces. A definite beauty, which deserves a prominent spot in any redware collection.

Condition: Plate is in excellent condition with no cracks, hairlines, or repairs. It has no unintentional chips, cracks, or scratches. It has two small spots of glaze loss, which we show in fourth photo which maybe new or could be original to the plate (we truly are not certain), which do not distract from the beauty or quality of the plate and are mentioned here for completeness. The plate does have intentional chips along the rim, crazing, a few spots where the glaze is lost, and some scuff marks and scratches throughout. All of these can be seen in the photo. Of course, all of these are intentional to give the plate the required look of the reproduced plate from days gone by. Please see photos for additional condition information.
