This set of unique dishes would be perfect for a bird lover with a taste for china. Each of the 6 plates portray a different songbird along with some brightly colored flora to set off the feathered fauna. Though these were manufactured some time ago, the porcelain-white base, the foam-green edge, and the golden lace detail have a high luster and steady feel.

An interesting bit of trivia about these dishes – they are double stamped. The first (chronologically) label is in fine black script, for the most part illegible. However, one can discern that they were made in Germany. The second stamp, bolder in dark green with a more promonant logo, clearly says Western Germany. Intriguing.
