This is a lovely square stoneware plate. It has a wonderful earthy cream and brown glazed impressed surface. It is approx 1/2" deep great for serving a small plate of cookies at tea. The tray is pretty enough to be on a lady's dressing table or nightstand, a perfect resting spot for your rings and things. It could even be used as a large coaster. The glaze is leadfree. It has a glaze-free bottom and is signed by me. It measures approx. 5 1/4"square. Four felt feet will be included if you wish to apply them for a scratch free bottom. It would make a perfect gift for a friend feeling down or a new neighbor.
