Set of 2 Tea Plates - no stamp
Apilco Green and Gold Bistro
Two green and gold Apilco tea plates.
Each tea plate measures approximately 6 1/2 inches (165 mm) in diameter.
Please note neither plate is stamped with a maker's back stamp. There are some cutlery marks visible and wear to the gold rim.
- Second quality Items classed as seconds have failed one or more of the manufacturer's stringent manual inspections for quality. This may be due to a marginal fault to the shape of the item (e.g. might be slightly lob-sided), the size or weight (e.g. the item might be slightly under or over the specified accepted size/weight), the finish (e.g. any print or decoration might be offset or slightly lighter/darker than the manufacturer's standard), or a number of other aspects that the manufacturer doesn't think is perfect enough. Second-quality items are usually denoted by a mark or scratch through the manufacturer's back stamp, but they are still perfectly functional. If you are happy to accept slightly less-than-perfect quality, seconds can be a good buy, as they are cheaper than their first quality equivalent.
- Previously owned - signs of wear Items showing signs of wear have visible usage marks, either scuffs, fading and/or more extreme cutlery marks (more than expected for the age of the item). Specific details are mentioned in the description above.
