This plate was painted on porcelain in 1928 by a great uncle. Mother displayed it in the china hutch, as I do today. The handles are gold, but seem not to show up properly.
This is a hobnail cake plate from the early 1900's. It was often used at Mom's dinner parties at dessert time. Always beautiful! I remember a cake on it once that was decorated all around the edge at the bottom with fresh summer flowers.
Hope you enjoyed this little bit from my history!
