Appledore tea plate
    Appledore tea plate

This plate is made of bone china and decorated with the Appledore pattern. The rim has a plain background unlike Appledore's usual use of a lemon background to the border, the pattern has a feint printed outline in brown and is filled in with enamel colours. The plate's rim is gold edge lined, however the interior edge line delineating the border from the plate's centre is missing. A turquoise leaf and berry border decorates the rim and surrounds a cornucopia of grapes in the centre of the plate.
