This Delftware plate was an estate sale purchase several years ago. At that time the plate had a small chip on the rim. The purchaser has had the damage restored to the point where it hardly is noticeable. On the reverse is an indistinguishable blue mark, but otherwise the plate has no identifying features. It is nine inches in diameter.
