The ornate rim and wonderful center design complement each other perfectly. The ornate rim has been painted in gold in a sponge effect making the raised relief stand out beautifully. The artist has chosen two stems of the thistle plant in deep golden raised enamel. The raised enamel is absolutely beautiful. This is all painted on a creamy beige matte finish. It is hard to imagine this plate is over 134 years old. ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS! Being its age it does have a tight hairline on the rim that is very hard to detect from the front and a under rim chip that is also not seen when displayed. Manufacturing anomalies may exist, the occasional tiny iron speck, dust 'bump' in the glaze, etc This is a wonderful and beautiful art plate.
