Description:  Bread & Butter plates are quite common. These are the larger 7″ bread & butters. See separate page for the smaller 6″ bread & butters. As with all early Canton plates they are very attractive in their primitive painting. They range in diameter from 7″ to 7 3/8″ and from 7/8″ to 1″ high. The 3 bread & butter plates pictured are a representative sample. All of these bread & butter plates have glazed bottoms, rain cloud borders and are heavier and sturdier than later light weight rain cloud plates or those with straight-line borders.
