DESCRIPTION: This dessert set was designed in a very classic pattern with pink roses & smaller blue flowers to form a garland encircling the plate. There is a double line of gold around the rim decorated with the Greek Key design on the inner gold and a thin gold line on the verge. The overall quality of the design is quite professional. The heavy gold trim on the reticulated handles is very rich looking and accents the embossing.CONDITION: While this set is classified as used, its condition is excellent for its age. We can find no defects or minor damage. There is minor rubbing wear on some of the Greek Key design.
Only one dessert plate has a tiny rim nick and an old very tight hairline radiating towards the middle of the plate. Otherwise, there are no chips, nicks, cracks, rubbings, scratches, crazing or hairlines. Overall, the gold trim is solid & glossy. We included a close-ups to help you judge the condition.
This is a set we would proudly use. DIMENSIONS: Handle to handle, the cake plate is 10 3/8" while its diameter is 9 3/4". Its height is 1 3/8 at the handles. The dessert plates have a diameter of 6 3/16" and a height of 3/4". HISTORY/MARKS: Remy Delinieres and P.
