This gorgeous Bone China Forget-Me-Not Handled Cake Plate by Paragon will work well as a Serving Plate for presenting many delicious offerings! Sprays of dainty blue and light purple forget-me-not flowers decorate the rim and spill onto the surface of the plate in six places. Each spray of abundant blossoms stretches and curls on delicate green stems with green leaves. The scalloped rim is subtly fluted with narrow pleats and trimmed with a gold edge. The fancy embossed closed handles are outlined in gold.
This exquisite plate is 9-1/2 inches in diameter and the closed handles extend the width to 10-1/2 inches.
Made by Paragon circa the 1960s to 1970s, the gold and red lion and unicorn Royal Arms backstamp reads: "By Appointment To Her Majesty The Queen, China Potters, Paragon, Fine Bone China, England Regd. L/L” (A Royal Warrant was issued by the Queen in the 1930s.) The mark is finished with a color miniature of the Forget-Me-Not motif.
As in most vintage pieces, there are normal, small surface scratches. There is a bit of paper residue from an old label on the back. There are no chips, cracks, or crazing to this beautiful plate.
