The factory artist has used a wonderful royal blue and red to form a nice geometric design around the rim. He continues with the blue to form pedestal like designs where he as incorporated reds, gold and greens. It looks like one of the designs could be a golden ear of corn? The colors are bold upon the creamy white background and very eye appealing. There are no chips or cracks on this piece. IT IS RARE TO FIND OLDER 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.
