Made in Hungary, each white porcelain plate is decorated with hand-painted green flowers trimmed with a gold accent rim. There is also a cool basket weave raised surface band around the edge. Each plate is 7 1/4" in diameter and stands 3/4" tall.
I do not know the manufacturers status of these plates, but I believe they were offered in Europe many years ago and a few pieces have migrated to America over the years. There are no chips, cracks, crazing or repairs to these plates. There are some light scuff marks and utensil marks on each plate. Two of the plates have noticeable light metal utensil marks.
There are some light scratches and tiny scuff marks on the gold trim, but over-all these lovely plates are in great shape! Please see photos for details. Enjoy more photos of this and our other items at.

Here's the cool thing - if you accidentally break one, it won't break the bank!This plate set would make a lovely upgrade for your afternoon teatime or later in the day for dessert servings.
