H & B Company has done a superb job on this piece. The raised relief is well defined showing the stalks and head of the asparagus. Two stems for a rim for the well for dipping sauce on the side of the plate. Soft green, white and taupe colors have been used to accentuate the vegetable.There are no cracks or chips on this piece. IT IS RARE TO FIND ANTIQUE EARTHENWARE IN "LIKE NEW" CONDITION BECAUSE OF WEAR FROM USE AND AGE. TINY GLAZE FLAKES AND CRAZING IS NORMAL AND ADDS CHARACTER TO EACH PIECE.
