Antique Sandwich Plate Or Cake Plate. Edwardian Cake Plate or Serving Platter, Blue And White China. Perfect For An Afternoon Tea Party

Description ~

This English large sandwich or cake serving plate is a true antique from the Edwardian era. The transfer printed pattern of flowers and scrolls is very beautiful and in the most wonderful shade of blue. The rim is prettily rippled and there is a lovely moulded pattern into the plate too. The blue pattern really stands out against the white of the china. There is no maker's mark, but 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 Edwardian England. Elegant and eye catching, this blue and white pattern is just as lovely and desirable today as when it was made at the start of the twentieth 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! 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.

**Please note that the matching trios in the same pattern are now all sold out.

Dimensions ~

9 inches (22.8cm) diameter. All measurements approximate.

Condition ~

This plate is in excellent antique condition, especially given its age. There are no cracks, chips or crazing to the glaze. There is just the odd tiny and very minor blemish from the time of manufacture, typical of Edwardian china. There is wear to the pattern in small areas, where the blue has slightly faded/discoloured - see photo 3. This is minor and does not spoil the overall beauty of this plate. Its rim edge gilding has wear in places that is commensurate with age and use, as you would expect for a plate of this age with a lengthy tea party history! Any other wear is commensurate with age. Please just ask if you would like any further photos.
