About Fenton Absentee Dragon and Strawberry
This pattern has 8 tear-shaped panels circling a central dragon surrounded by scale filler. Every other panel has a cluster of three strawberries with leaves. The outer edge is a scale type filler. This appears to be a prototype of the Dragon and Strawberry pattern with semi-blank panels where the Dragons would appear. The back has a smooth panel pattern. The plates measure about 9″ across
