8" silver plate; raised 1" border of plate is embossed with grape vine design depicting buches of grapes, grape leaves, and branches. Detail can be seen on every leaf. The back of the plate carries a stamp with the words "QUADRUPLE PLATE" arcing above a spider web emblem containing a star in the middle with the letter "W" inside of the star. Just beneath the spider web is the stamped number "39" and to the right of the stamp is the number "2773" etched into the plate.
