This dish measures 8 1/2in. across. I has a 3/4 in. border of gilt surrounding the edge of the plate. Lovely bunches of grapes painted purple and gold pop up here and there. Nippon uses a border of beading to circle the plate and uses the beading to intertwine amongst the tendrils from leaves. NIPPON china was introduced in 1911. this plate has a etched feel to it due to the beading and art work. No chips,cracks or crazing.
