The pattern is a rather complex one, with several borders on panels, circular cartouches, cranes, bamboo and other flora. This platter has a raised section in the middle that would have secured a tureen safely. There are no cracks or major chips on these pieces. 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.
