This is Taylor Smith Taylor's upscale Chippendale collection in a gold wheat pattern designed to compete with Lenox. All12 plates are marked with a gold V, a script TS&T logo and "Chippendale Collection". The marking also indicates "Hallmark of Quality" and "Fine Translucent American China". The base color is an elegant cream and the rims of these plates are edged in gold. These bread and butter plates measure 6 inches across and could also be used as dessert plates. The pattern is 3 stalks of wheat and leaves in matching gold. All pieces show some utensil marks but are in otherwise excellent condition with no chips, cracks or crazing and minimal to no stray markings with beautiful glazing. Gold is exceptionally strong. Do not confuse these with other golden wheat patterns. See the bottom mark in picture 4. A very tough quality TST line and these are in excellent shape. See our other listings in this great pattern and save on shipping. Two sets of 4 and one set of 3 available.
