I have a lot of lovely plates, but this one is definitely the prettiest, with its wavy edgedness and little floral print. I managed to find 4 of them, sadly a fifth one was broken, but four was fine................ I have no idea of the date of manufacture, but I suspect it is quite old. They're (almost) too pretty to use, but would look so nice with a slice of cake on LOL. I'd like to find out the date, so will do a bit of research into it.
