Each authentic MultiColored Plate is created in the same manner that has made Delft ware famous throughout the world. All personalizations are done in black against the traditional, gleaming ivory background. The plates (8 ¼" diameter) depict a charming storybook vignette of the baby's arrival...Once your plate is complete, it is completely glazed to ensure permanence and clarity of color. And each plate has its own wire hanger. But aside from its decorative value, The Delft Birth Plate is a lasting record commemorating the birth of someone special.
