This eastern china plate is 8 1/4" in diameter. The rim of the plate is layered in 22k gold. Also in the center it reads 50th Anniversary in 22kt gold. There is a small spot just above the rim on the bottom section of the plate that is just a little darker. I believe this is a manufacturers defect. On the back it reads: Eastern China N.Y. U.S.A. 22kt Gold.
