It measures 3 7/8" across, 1 3/4" across & bows up in the middle, It is decorated all around the Place Card Holder with beautiful delicate little flowers of Violets, Roses and Green Leaves that are in colors of Violet, Yellow, Pink, and Orange. The empty space, which is rough on the inside part for the "Name" measures 2 3/4" x 5/8" and you can write in the Person's / Company's Name in pencil and then you can erase it easily enough. The Place Card Holder is held up at a angle on a angled riser foot on either edge, so you can easily see the Name on the Place Card Holder and figure out the Seating Arrangement. It is outlined in Gold all around the edge of the Place card Holder and has Gold around the empty Name Placement and has Gold around the Angled riser Feet. It is marked on the back with a fancy initial " TS" & "Dresden Saxony". This is a Great Work of Art, as well as being so beautifully hand painted and are in Pristine Condition.
