Condition Report
Excellent antique condition without damage, crazing or restoration and still rings nicely when tapped. 
There is a small amount of kiln dust stuck in the glaze on the back of the plate, this is common on pieces made at this time. There are two rough areas on the rear of the handles which feel like small nips but when viewed closely these are also pieces of kiln dust. 
There is some wear to the gold in both the centre and on the rim.



The picture has "bright areas" which are reflections not damage.
