Offered for your consideration is this Paragon Fine China Tapestry Rose Double Warrant Luncheon Plate. The Tapestry Rose pattern is a pretty brushed design of stitches of deep pink roses accented with blue and pale pink flowers on a continuous ring of green leaves and pink buds. A narrow golden brown background rims the plate. A matching nosegay of blossoms is in the center of the plate ringed with green and pink scrolls, and the plate edge is trimmed with gold.
This Paragon Tapestry Rose Luncheon Plate measures 8-1/4 inches in diameter.
The Double Warrant backstamp in brown reads: "Paragon, By Appointment to HM the Queen & HM Queen Mary, Fine China, England Regd.Tapestry Rose." (Both Royal Warrants were issued by the respective Queens in the 1930's.) This mark was used from 1939 to 1949, and this pattern was produced by Paragon from about 1938 to 1952.
This is a beautiful display plate at a bargain price. There are several long lines of crazing along the inner rim and two of these appear to go through, though they are smaller on the back. The back of the plate has two places with light gray edge stains as though from newsprint. There are no chips.
