 RARE & difficult to find!

Just like the one in my logo and my collection!  For consideration, here is a fantastic soap plate/ candy dish/ or spoon rest in the highly collectible & sought after pattern Charlotte, from Clarice Cliff of Royal Staffordshire, Burslem England. The base is footed so it rests evenly. It is absolutely beautiful, depicting a Victorian style basket filled with an array of fresh cut flowers.
