Maker and age : On the reverse of these 8 classically elegant and heavily gold encrusted dinner plates is the green underglaze Heinrich & Co/H&C mark that was in use between 1930 and 1939. That means the plates are at least 82 years old and perhaps as old as 91. Heinrich H&C Porzellan, one of Germany's most important makers, produced excellent porcelain wares in Selb, Bavaria, from 1901 to 1976, when it became part of Villeroy & Boch, one of the world's largest manufacturers of fine porcelain.Design : These exquisite plates would make a powerful statement of good taste on any table. With a wide band of textured gold encrustation featuring finely etched flower urns and dragons, they speak to an age of distinguished dining that has never gone out of style. Size : Each plate is 10 7/8 inches wide and together they weigh 12 pounds 2 ounces. Condition : The plates have been very well cared for throughout their long life. All 8 are in great condition with no nicks, chips, cracks, scratches, marks, stains, repairs, utensil marks or wear. The gold is entirely intact. One plate has a small dark spot in the gold - it's shown in the photo with the red arrow. And is a frequent occurrence in this type of gold decoration. Please check all the photos very carefully - they are an important part of the description.
