Poetry Plates - Accessories Fine bone china plates with gold luster edging and blue text. The large 10 inch plate features a love poem unusually written from the perspective of the plate to you. The medium 8 inch plate reads "I am nothing but a simple plate, porcelain skin painted gold and blue. I am not a poet, just a dish, but I'll leave that judgement up to you." The texts are written in a romantic handwritten style of a old love letter complete with dips of ink and imperfections.
