This is an odds and ends Mikasa plate that I found on a sales shelf. The boarder was painted at the factory and it has a platinum edge. I cut out the decal and snipped here and there to make it fit like I wanted. It's fine to overlap parts of it or remove parts you don't like. Once it's all put together it looks like it was supposed to be they way you decide it should be. Have it kiln fired and you are set to go. I like to use this plate for desserts when serving tea with my blue teacups and saucers.
