This rust-colored Royal Paisley Chintz Crescent Salad Plate from Arnart Creations, Japan, will be a cheerful addition to your table! The all-over rust paisley chintz motif that covers the top of the dish is an elaborate design of flowers and paisley scrolls in shades ranging from rust to brown to golden yellow. The crescent-shaped plate has a scalloped rim trimmed with gold. Larger than the typical bone dish, this dish can easily accommodate a small salad or other side dish.
This dish measures 8-inches across the points, 3-1/2 inches wide at the center, and 1-inch deep.
From Arnart Creations, Japan, circa the 1950s to 1970s, it is stamped in gold with a crown, ®, and the words “Royal Paisley, Arnart 5th Ave. 1645M.” Arnart Creations was actually an importer based in New York City. Though their designs were meant to look like their finer European counterparts and garner a part of that market, Arnart pieces are becoming collectible in their own right.
Other than normal, small surface scratches that virtually disappear in this ornate design, and very minor wear on the gold, there are no condition issues.
