The handle is made of brass colored plastic and screws in at the underside of the tray. The glaze is very shiny, reflecting the light in the most amazing way. I detected no chips or cracks, but there are a few areas on the bottom that feel a little rough, apparently where glaze was not applied perfectly in the manufacturing process. Please zoom in on pics for a closer look.
You will notice in the back view of the plate that it appears like there is a small bend along one of the scallops. It looks like the piece may have touched another when it was removed from the mold, but that whole area is covered well with the glaze, feels smooth to the touch, and most importantly, the mishap did not affect the top of the tray in any way. It appears perfect when viewed from the top side. This white tray is so versatile and with a little encouragement is more than willing to help you celebrate any special occasion!
