Fabulous and VERY rare, highly collectible vintage "Garland" by Royal Stafford 8-inch dessert/luncheon plate....a super desirable and sought after plate in excellent condition. This listing is for ONE plate. Extremely hard to find this rare pattern but I have amassed a small collection of it over the years which I will be listing here! Gorgeous colors of soft blue ornamented with handpainted pink, white, blue, yellow, green and heavy encrusted shimmering gold lustre throughout the floral design which circles the plate in a rich garland-- all of the design is very crisp and detailed. Royal Stafford china in the rare Garland pattern is just breathtakingly beautiful in person and the scarcity of it has made it very valuable. Please see my other listings for the same plate in green!
Please be sure to read this description completely so that you are aware of and understand all elements, issues and policies before purchasing, thank you! Do check my other listings for many more exquisite items including lots more vintage china.

This gorgeous piece, as with all my pieces, will be exceptionally well wrapped and packaged in the best shipping materials and sturdy boxing---through years of purchasing fine china I know how important it is to package things carefully. Please note that if there is breakage caused in shipping, refunds WILL be given when buyer provides me with photographs of the damage immediately upon receipt of the damaged goods----not several days, or weeks, or months after receipt----since these are vintage items there will be no refunds for other reasons, as I take great care to describe items/issues meticulously and thoroughly; and because they are VINTAGE items with the inherent age qualities of vintage items, I do not guarantee or claim that they are new and as-flawless-as new. I make every effort to scrutinize each piece very carefully, and will always note any flaw or issue within the description. If purchasing more than one item from my vintage china section, I will combine shipping wherever possible/feasible and refund any excess postage once I've packaged all of your items. (Please note that some items may be too large or numerous to safely combine together with others in one package) I've lovingly acquired and curated vintage china pieces for years now and have carefully searched for matching pieces in the same patterns as well as ones that harmonize beautifully with each other to create a charming ambience for a tea table, celebration, or just to display and enjoy.....vintage china sets such a wonderfully nostalgic mood as well as being delightful to collect... For the first time I am now sharing them in my shop along with my own handmade artworks and one of a kind designer original creations---stay tuned for many, many more exquisite pieces!
