If you are looking for a set of GORGEOUS antique plates, these are for you!! As you can see in the pictures, these plates are quite old and there is obvious wear to the gold. Other sites have these listed as mid 30's-40'....I cannot authenticate this age, but they are quite old. What I LOVE about these plates are that they are not in perfect condition.....I LOVE anything that shows character and that "pre-loved" look!! These can be used as salad, bread or luncheon plates. They look beautiful centered on a gold rimmed china dinner plate for an ELEGANT accent. A fabulous addition to a Holiday table!!! Each plate measures 8" and the gold rim measures a bit over half and inch.
