FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION IS A VINTAGE SET OF JOHNSON BROTHERS OLD ENGLISH CHINA. THE UNDERSIDE OF EACH PIECE OFFERED IS STAMPED IN GREEN WITH OLD ENGLISH-A CROWN-JOHNSON BROS.- MADE IN ENGLAND-THE LETTER "G" IS ALSO STAMPED. INCLUDED IN THIS LISTING IS ONE CAKE PLATE/PLATTER AND 11 SQUARE SALAD/CAKE PLATES. THE SQUARE PLATES MEASURE 7-3/4". T ARE SIX DIFFERENT COLOR PLATES AND DIFFERENT FRUIT COMBINATIONS. EACH PIECE HAS A CREAM COLORED BRAID TRIM. I DON'T HAVE AN EXACT YEAR FOR MANUFACTURE FOR THESE PIECES BUT DO KNOW THAT IT IS LONG DISCONTINUED. ACCORDING TO THE FAMILY THAT I GOT THESE FROM THEY WERE IN THE FAMILY FOR WELL OVER 40 YEARS (that is taking their word- i have no for sure proof of that information). WHAT I DO KNOW IS THAT YOU CAN PURCHASE THESE BEAUTIFUL PLATES AT ONE OF THE ONLINE REPLACEMENT SITES FOR $29.99 EACH!! I AM OFFERING THIS GROUP OF 11 PLUS PLATTER FOR THAT PRICE!! OKAY- NOW TO THE GOOD STUFF- YOU WILL RECEIVE (1) ONE LIGHT BLUE ROUND PLATTER TYPE DISH/PLATE WITH TAB HANDLES- IT MEASURES 10-1/4" FROM TAB TO TAB AND IS 9-1/2 ACROSS. DARK BLUE ACCENTS THE TAB HANDLES AND CIRCLES THE PEARS,GRAPES AND RASPBERRIES IN THE CENTER. UTENSIL MARKS (scratching) ARE PRESENT IN THE BLUE AND A 1/8"FLAKE ON THE BOTTOM SIDE RIM IS ALSO NOTED. THE ELEVEN PLATES INCLUDE; (2) MINT GREEN PLATES OF WHICH ONE HAS A 1/16" FLAKE ON THE UNDERSIDE RIM, (2) YELLOW PLATES- ONE HAS TWO SMALL FLEABITES ON THE UNDERSIDE AND THE OTHER HAS A MICROSCOPIC FLEABITE ALSO ON THE UNDERSIDE RIM, (2) BLUE PLATES WITH SOME WEAR TO THE BLUE COLORING ON ONE AND THE OTHER HAS TWO SMALL UNDERSIDE RIM FLEABITES. T ARE ALSO (2) TEAL GREEN PLATES WITH EACH HAVING A SMALL FLEABITE ON THE UNDERSIDE RIM, (1) PINK PLATE WHICH JUST SHOWS SOME WEAR TO THE PINK- (very minor) AND (2) BEIGE PLATES- OF WHICH ONE HAS A SMALL UNDER RIM FLEABITE AND THE OTHER HAS A 1/2" FLAKE/CHIP OF THE TOP SIDE RIM. THE BEIGE IS THE ONLY PIECE THAT HAS ANY DAMAGE VISIBLE FROM THE TOP SIDE OF ANY PIECE. NONE OF THE FLEABITES ARE SIGNIFICANT BUT NEEDED TO BE NOTED FOR ACCURACY. THIS IS STILL A FANTASTIC SET AND WILL DISPLAY BEAUTIFULLY OR WITHSTAND LOADS MORE USE WITH CAREFUL WASHING (my guess is the small imperfections on the plates were caused while washing and not taking the utmost care). THE COLORS ARE BEAUTIFUL AND WILL COMPLIMENT ANY DECOR. THE FRUITS THAT ARE DISPLAYED ON THE PIECES ARE GRAPES, ORANGES, PEARS, STRAWBERRIES, RASPBERRIES AND PLUMS ALL LUSH AND DELICIOUS LOOKING AND ACCENTED BY GREEN/GREY AND LAVENDER LEAVES AND STEMS. THE SQUARE PLATES ARE SUPPOSED TO BE SALAD PLATES BUT WITH THE SMALL PLATTER I WOULD THINK THIS WOULD MAKE A GORGEOUS DESSERT SET- SERVE A YUMMY CHEESECAKE ON THE PLATTER AND DISH OUT ONTO THE SQUARE PLATES AND HAVE A GORGEOUS TABLE!! DON'T LET THE FLEABITES OR UTENSIL MARKS KEEP YOU FROM THIS GORGEOUS SET- WHILE NOT PERFECT- IT IS PERFECTLY LOVELY AND WILL BE THE PERFECT ADDITION TO YOUR JOHNSON BROTHERS CHINA COLLECTION. THESE DELICATE PIECES WILL BE PACKAGE CAREFULLY TO ARRIVE SAFELY TO YOU!!
