MAY GOOD DIGESTION WAIT ON APPETITE is the writing on this very old ironstone service dish, most likely from a larger home. The brown marks are from something hot being placed on the platter all those years ago and there are crackle marks but such character. If I had a larger kitchen I'd keep this. Twelve inches wide, there is an impressed mark which I can't make out. I have said $10 for shipping and I will pay the balance.
