I purchased a set of 4 of these for a gift for a friend to use as chargers. I am so enamored of them I am considering keeping them to gift as 4 separate platters, maybe making fruit "baskets" and giving them away to special friends for the holidays.! The plates are beautiful and classy looking. The glass is heavy and the paint is on the back side. The color is a warm gold, solid coating on the back - think gold on the front and platinum on the back. The design is very intricate and they seem a bit larger than the stated size. This lends versatility to them as they can be used as chargers or as serving platters. They come with a Made in Turkey sticker in the back and a small, clear logo sticker in the center/front of the plate. The plates arrived quite quickly and were packaged extremely well - almost excessive. They arrived in one medium sized box - for only four plates!! When I opened it, the plates were wrapped in what looked like a 16-inch overstuffed pillow of cushioning, bubble wrap and tape. Not one was chipped or damaged. Remove the tiny, clear sticker on the front before use. I ordered a set in silver and didn't realize the logo was on a clear, nearly impossible to see sticker that did NOT/NOT soak off but required scraping with a fingernail to remove and a bit of acetone to remove sticker residue.
