This huge round platter is in the desert Rose pattern by Gladding, McBean & Company's Franciscan line. The circle backstamp is the one used from 1939-49. This piece is in excellent condition with only some light usage marks only visible under bright light and close inspection. If you have this pattern, this platter is a must. The platter measures 14" in diameter. It weighs almost four pounds without packaging, and will require a large box, so standard shipping will be offered.
