Description:  Luncheon plates are quite common although perfect condition ones are scarcer.  As with all early Canton plates they are very attractive in their primitive painting. They range in diameter from 8 1/2″ to 9 1/8″ and from 7/8″ to 1 1/4″ deep. If they are deeper we would consider them soup bowls. The 3 luncheon plates pictured are a representative sample. All of these luncheon plates have glazed bottoms and are heavier and sturdier than later plates with straight-line borders.
