Starter / Salad / Dessert Plate Regency Gold - Noritake by Noritake
Condition and Availability
Regency Gold - Noritake
Starter / Salad / Dessert Plate
My 30 year old dinner service is whole again thanks to China search. The plate was received in perfect condition. It was well packaged and didn't take long to arrive after I had placed my order.
The replacement plate is not absolutely identical. The pattern numbers and stamps are different, the gold lines are paler and narrower than the original and the central depression area is wider. This is no doubt due to the fact that my set is now quite elderly and even classic designs change over time. Also mine was made in the Phillipines and the replacement in Sri Lanka. However unless one looked very closely indeed they look like a match and I am quite happy. There may have been other design changes, perhaps in the style of soup plates/bowls for example, so it may be useful for Chinasearch to be aware of this.
Standard Condition Definitions
Pieces in 'Very Good' condition (Green graded items, identified with a 'G' on the invoice) may have:
- slight surface scratching, or wear consistent with normal use
- tiny manufacturing blemishes, only noticeable on close inspection
- a 'seconds' mark. This will be on the base of the piece and varies according to the manufacturer. These will be 'eye perfect', meaning that without close inspection it would be hard to identify any manufacturing defects.
Pieces in 'Good' condition (Yellow graded items, identified with a 'Y' on the invoice):
- As for 'Very Good', but may also include slight fading or wear to the trim, very slight crazing, minor pitting, grit under the glaze, a surface scratch and/or glaze wear. It certainly won't have all of these.
