- Pattern: Gray Rose (Discontinued)
- Made in USA
- Vintage: 1950’s – 1960’s (estimated)
- Details: These plates are absolutely beautiful! Part of the beauty is in their simplicity, a single white rose with vibrant green leaves and stem. We think it may be called gray rose because it’s named after the Earl Gray Rose which is a bit like this one and has a light pink center. Regardless, it is a beautiful plate and the platinum verge and rim add a very special touch. The plates are stamped in the back: “Embassy U.S.A., Vitrified China”. Hand Washing is strongly recommended. These plates are heavy and will need a lot of packaging to get to you safely, our price already includes the ever increasing shipping fees, no surprises at check-out. Salad plates are one of the easiest ways to change a table setting. These would look great on top of white, green or even a pastel pink plate. Good size to use alone for a light lunch or as larger dessert plates. We hope you enjoy them anyway you decide to use them. Makes a great gift too!

Jackson China Company has been associated with the Embassy brand but we were unable to confirm. Although it makes sense because Jackson was one of the earlier pottery companies to make dinnerware for the restaurant industry and the majority of that was vitrified china (makes it stronger, because the process gives the clay properties very similar to glass. The transformation strengthens the material dramatically and makes it much less porous than non-vitrified ceramics). Production of Royal Jackson fine translucent china started in 1951, that became their most popular brand. In 1976 all Jackson China assets & name rights were purchased by Newman Industries of England. We dated these plates 1950’s – 1960’s based on some research as well as looking through the shapes of the Gray Rose servingware and comparing them with similar servingware of that time period.
