  • Details
    These china dessert plates are the kind of fine hand painted vintage china plates most preferred for use to serve the small sandwiches and biscuits (cookies) commonly part of traditional tea party gatherings. The fact that there are two sets of four of these 1930s matching plates available is a rare opportunity to equip yourself to serve as many as 8 guests with matching plates.

    Each plate is richly and skillfully hand painted with 2 sprays of beautifully coordinated pastel spring flowers. The center of each plate is snow white and separated from the very soft yellow border by a subtle lacy line of filigree trim. The design is completed with a generous line of gold trim around the edge of each plate.

    The plates are marked on the back with the Japanese Meito mark that goes back to the 1930s. This is the era when Meito was still enjoying the talents of some of Nippon/Noritake's best designers who had defected to this competitor.

    Each plate measures 6 1/2" wide, and all are in almost perfect condition -- no chips or cracks and hardly any wear. One set or both sets of 4 would be wonderful to use for entertaining in your home, or to give as a gift to a very lucky bride, relative or friend.

    Note that each set of 4 hand painted plates is priced at $24.00. Use the toggle at the top right of the listing to select 1 set of 4 or 2 sets of 4. If there is no toggle it means that someone has gotten here ahead of you and bought 1 set of 4, and there is now only 1 set of 4 of these unique 1930s plates remaining available to purchase.
