Hand crafted by Dutch artists in Holland... Each authentic Delft Birth Plate is created in the same manner that has made Delft ware famous throughout the world. All designs and personalization are done in classic Delft Blues 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.
