Antique Sandwich Plate Or Large Cake Plate. Victorian Cake Plate or Serving Platter, Turquoise And White Flower Pattern, For A Tea Party

**Two available at the time of listing. Price is PER plate**

Description ~

This English large sandwich or cake serving plate is a true antique from the Victorian era. The beautiful Victorian transferware pattern of flowers and foliage is very beautiful and in the most wonderful shade of dark turquoise/blue-green. It really stands out against the white of the china. There is no maker's mark, but the matching trios I also have available in my shop show a hand pattern number of 220 under their teacups. It is highly likely that this plate was manufactured in Stoke-On-Trent, the heart of the English potteries. This plate is a beautiful example of an English tea party table setting serving plate from Victorian England. Elegant and eye catching, this turquoise and white pattern is just as lovely and desirable today as when it was made in the nineteenth century. This plate would stand out proudly on your tea table and would also display beautifully. It is perfect for serving that quintessentially English teatime cake, the Victoria Sandwich.

A lovely gift for any occasion and especially for serving cakes - large and whole or dainty and small, slices of loaf cakes, charcuterie meats, sandwiches or canapés on.

Perfect for a tea set or antique china collector, or as a gift to someone who loves tea, cake and blue and white china or the colour turquoise! It would also make a wonderful gift for a special occasion such as a wedding or baby shower, or for someone who loves baking cakes.

**Two available at the time of listing. Price is PER plate**

Please note that at the time of listing, I have three matching trios I also had available in this pattern, as shown in photo 6. The link below takes you to the trios' listing:

Dimensions ~

9 1/4 inches (23.5cm) diameter. All measurements approximate.

PLEASE NOTE: This plate has very slightly upwards rising sides on the patterned sides moving out away from its flat central circle, so is not completely flat.

Condition ~

This plate is in excellent antique condition, especially give its age. There are no cracks, chips or crazing to the glaze. There is the odd tiny and minor blemish from the time of manufacture and the odd little mark/speck in the china, typical of Victorian china. There is some wear to its rim edge gilding in places, as you would expect for a plate of this age with a lengthy tea party history! Please remember this is a special antique item and so cannot be expected to be in the modern, brand new, mint condition. Its has character and a great tea time history. Any other wear is commensurate with age. Please just ask if you would like any further photos.

Packaging and Shipping ~

Your item will arrive carefully packaged and wrapped prettily in vintage style brown paper and ribbon.

**FREE Christmas gift wrapping available at the checkout!**

**Please read my shipping policies BEFORE ordering**
If you are resident outside of the UK and nervous about ordering china from abroad please don't be. I take tremendous care to wrap all my items to the highest standard regardless of the distance they travel, near or far, by land or air. Please see my customer reviews, which confirm how well and carefully I package my orders and, of course, if you have any concerns or questions just ask and I will get back to you straight away**j

Please note, it is not possible to reserve items for first time customers, I'm very sorry. I can only reserve an item for a repeat customer, for a strict 24 hour period only.
All orders are gift wrapped in vintage style brown paper and pretty ribbon as standard. There is no extra charge for this. Christmas gift wrapping can also be selected for an order at the checkout. I reuse packaging boxes and filling materials wherever possible, for environmental reasons and to keep costs down, but please rest assured that your order will still look smartly gift wrapped.
