I think this is probably the best looking Crown Ducal China pattern I have ever seen. It is hand painted with wildflowers and tulips. A lot of the paint is raised to give more definition to the flowers. These square plates are very hard to find. The salad plate measures 8 1/4" in diameter. I have two of these available but the price in this ad is for one. There are a couple of small chips on the backside of the plate only but the front is so beautiful you won't even care.
