Grape plate

I really like this plate. It is a fine example of china painting. If you do china painting you know how many steps there are to getting a plate to this level of beauty. I do a little bit of china painting but it is not like this. If you look real close, you can see a couple of chips on the bottom. But that is no problem for me because of the quality of the painting. I got this plate at Monticello a wonderful shop in S.E. Portland in one of the antique booths. It is a great place to shop for found objects.

A little note on the weather it has quit snowing :( my family and I were looking forward to a little of the white stuff, for a while. But I understand how it can be a detriment to the economy. TTFN

Dear Wanda,
Lovely plate. I have a few from my Grandmother. I also have some china painted platters. They are nice to decorate with.
Hope you are staying warm. We are to have another round of cold and than another snow storm on Christmas Eve.
Looking forward to 2009 and getting to know you better.
