The description of these plates should mention the beautiful decoration the artist paints on the sides. This is visible especially when the plate is turned over. There are no pictures of this. So a wonderful surprise! These are nice, substantial plates. I like them very much. Unfortunately, mine are not the blue shown, but a greenish blue. Since it says color may vary, I guess it did. This is my fault for ordering items that are already in the U.S.(it will say so under the delivery description) and thus likely a return. I bet chances are that the same plates coming directly from the original country have a better chance of being the great blue described. Of course, they are unlikely to be on sale then...
Very attractive looking wood inlaid work, colorful design! Arrived very fast too! Size of the coaster is little smaller than expected, still tastefully done!
