Exquisite Decorative SMOOTH RIM 14 Sided Set of 11 Rimmed SOUP BOWLS from W. DESCRIPTION: The beautiful smooth rim decorative plate was decorated with the Green Chatsworth pattern. The design of the pattern includes a large floral spray in the center of the bowl and 6 smaller sprays spread around the wide, flat rim. The bowl’s scrollwork embossing is decorated with gold highlighting. It is very unusual to find the Chatsworth pattern in a true green. CONDITION: While this set of 11 rimmed soup bowls is classified as used, the condition is very good, particularly considering their age. Five of the bowls have very minor flakes on the back rim. Another has a tiny nick the front rim. There are no cracks, rubbings or hairlines. There is some very fine crazing as is normally evident on this type of china produced in this time period. As is normal, the 3 stilt marks are evident on the back of the bowls, but they are not prominent. See the photos to observe the condition for yourself. The bowl’s gold either shows some wear or was not evenly applied. There is no utensil scratches from use on the center of the bowls. These noted issues really are minor and do not affect the beauty or functionality of the set. DIMENSIONS: The bowls have diameter of 8 15/16″ with a height of 1 3/8″.
