This ornate set of eleven dessert plates and one large cake plate is as sweet as the buttercream cake you will use it to serve! The set is stamped "Queen Anne - Union Made- Made in USA- Warranted 22 K Gold" on the back dating it to the late 1930s.
The individual creamware plates are approximately 6 3/4" square with slightly scalloped corners. The serving plate is 12" across one side for handles and 11" wide vertically also with some nice shape to soften the sides. All have a very detailed gold scrollwork along with gold on the edges and a burst of bright florals in the center.
There is no loss of gold, chips or cracks however there is some discoloration on a couple of the plates and a touch on the serving plate. I think it only makes them look better but have priced them accordingly!
It is always nice to have these extra serving pieces- they can be used for dessert or pulled for a nice salad or bread assortment mixed with your other vintage treasures.
