Welcome to my auction!I have for your consideration 8 Pieces of Gold Castle - Hostess China - Made in Japan 6 Soup Bowls measure about 7 3/4" diameter and 2 Luncheon plates measures about 8 3/4" diameter Beautiful - excellent condition. Pale yellow border with floral decoration around border. Gold trim separates this pale yellow border and the white china center section which has a floral design in the center. Gold trim also around outer edge of the dishes. The backstamp on the back of the plates and 6 of the bowls is "Gold Castle Made in Japan R.E.G." Two bowls are marked "Hostess Made in Japan R.E.G." They are identical. This pattern was probably made for several years or several decades (as most china) and the backstamp may have changed during the time of production. No chips. No cracks. Excellent condition. There are pieces of this china listed on at much higher prices. This is an excellent oportunity to enlarge or replaces pieces you may be missing from your set.

The handling charge HELPS me defray the costs of boxes, tape, peanuts, bubble wrap envelopes, trips to the post office/UPS, etc. – BUT it does NOT cover all my actual costs.
