These plates are truly beautiful and the colors are still very bright. They are also very heavy. There are incised lines in the design. The 5 plates being sold as a lot. There is some wear and chipping of glaze around the plates' edges, but the faces are all in great condition. The worst chip is on the edge of the pink-rimmed plate and I've shown a picture of it, but there is minor flaking on the edges of the other plates as well. However, it does not detract from the vibrancy and beauty of the plates. All of the plates have the same stamp on the back "Hand Painted Italy 740/44. The plates measure 8 inches wide and 1 1/2 inches in depth.
