This is Taylor Smith and Taylor's Taylorstone line of china that was designed to be oven proof. Nice heavy pieces and this pattern is entitled Etruscan. The pattern features alternating light and dark brown blocks and lines. The base china color is a nice creamy white. This is a large oval serving platter and measures 13 1/8 inches in length. The piece is in excellent vintage condition with no chips cracks or crazing. There are some minor signs of utensil use and a slightly raised line of glaze on the inner rim that measures about an inch. It can be felt and seen when held to the light. An intriguing addition to your midcentury modern tablescape.
