With a riot of flowers, including iris, rose, tulips and primrose, these deep plates or bowls are especially attractive. They are somewhat larger than plate size, at nine and a quarter inches in diameter. The colors blend with one another in a very appealing way, and the flowers are unusually lively. They are marked with Chelsea’s red anchor. One has a small one-eighth-inch chip on the rim plus some normal crazing, and the other has restoration to the center, top and bottom, but not because of breakage. The dish rings, so the repainting must have something to do with the decoration—perhaps staining.
