Tradition. It is a beautifully crafted china plate with You Are
Special painted around the rim.
It has a rich history as this plate tradition was brought over to the
United States over 100 years ago from Europe. The red plate was set out to
honor special gifts or special events in a family's life and handed
down from generation to generation. So you are not only giving a gift
but the possible start of a tradition within the family.
