This platter is printed in the traditional Willow patter in dark blue. It measures 13 1/2" x 11". The well is deeper than many. The back is clearly marked with a lion on a crown over a banner with the words Semi China Warranted. The distinguishing characteristic of the mark is the thistle indicating this platter was made by a Scottish pottery. I have not identified the maker. There are no chips or cracks. There is a couple of minor stains on the front. The bottom of the platter is quite stained and worn. This is an indication of age and use. A great platter for the collector.
