This is a beautiful set of faience plates. They would look wonderful with that piece of apple pie or apple crisp and ice cream!! They have a nice shape with 1” high rims giving each plate slightly deeper center as other plates. On a creamy white background there are three red apples with green leaves and brown branches decorate the inside edge. The raised relief areas are well defined and very nicely painted, there are some of the higher portions that have lost a few specs paint. Two plates has rim flakes on the underside of the rim. These flaws cannot be seen from the top side. One plate is slightly discolored in a few places, this can be seen when examining the plate but not when displayed on a table. Please see pictures for condition. IT IS RARE TO FIND VINTAGE AND ANTIQUE MAJOLICA IN "LIKE NEW" CONDITION BECAUSE OF WEAR FROM USE AND AGE. TINY GLAZE FLAKES AND CRAZING IF PRESENT IS NORMAL AND ADDS CHARACTER TO EACH PIECE.
Please see our additional 4 plates that would make a wonderful set of 10! Item PLT1387
