This plate has wonderful earthy colors making it fit into any decorating style. The plate's edge is a soft brown color that blends into the golden raised relief design rim. On the rim are pairs of green bamboo leaves. The center of the plate has mottled colors of greens, browns and gold. This bamboo pattern is one of the "Big Three" patterns produced by Griffin, Smith and Hill. This pattern was produced in a full tea set including waste bowl and covered butter dish. Only one size plate was produced. Wouldn't it be a challenge to start trying to get the whole set! It is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or flakes. IT IS RARE TO FIND VINTAGE MAJOLICA IN "LIKE NEW" CONDITION BECAUSE OF WEAR FROM USE AND AGE. TINY GLAZE FLAKES AND CRAZING IF PRESENT IS NORMAL AND ADDS CHARACTER TO EACH PIECE.
Backstamp: GSH within Etruscan Majolica circle
