Vinatge Gardenia - Dinner Plate - Arcadian Fine China Prestige Shape circa 1950s/1960s
We never remember days, only moments. Cesare Pavese
Gardenias are one of the most romantic and aromatic flowers in the nighttime garden, so it's no surprise that they would also be the subject of an enchanting dinner plate as well. This rare vintage charmer was made by Arcadian Fine China sometime between the 1950s and 1960s in their Prestige shape.
Featuring a wide deep-emerald band, gold edging, and a blousy bouquet of three magnolia flowers, this plate with its green, white, and gold color palette adds an elegant statement to any summertime table. Whether you are looking for replacement pieces for your Arcadian set or are looking to put together your own mix and match collection of blooming plates, your tabletop will easily transform into a beautiful garden with the help of elegant dishes like this one.
- Rare, hard to find pattern
- Gardenia flowers
- Stamped on back with maker's mark
In lovely vintage condition. There are some light utensil marks on one of the leaves in the bouquet and in two spots on the grand band. The marks on the green band are ever so light and just slightly noticeable. Thankfully the beauty of the bouquet and the shiny gold inner and outer rim really detract the eye from these very minor flaws, which were so light they were difficult to photograph. The plate itself contains no chips or cracks and is in bright and shiny condition.
This plate measures 10.25" inches (diameter)
