The platter has an ivory-color background with an outer band and center medallion decorated with griffins, lyres, and classical floral scrollwork in blue, ocher, and black.

The oval measures approximately 18-5/8 inches long x 15 inches wide.
This 130 year old platter may have small in manufacture defects that do not affect the display of the piece.
