.urful th Exquisitely sculpted of rich warm pewter, it's the perfect gift for someone dear to you... A Limited Edition Christmas Plate from Hallmark Cards Mote than 500 Christmases ago. Renaissance art was raised to brilliant heights by a legendary Italian family that did for an what the Bach family later did for music. The very special magic of two members of the della Robbia family — Luca and Andrea — ha» been recreated by Hallmark in a strikingly gift-worthy plate sure to be welcomed into any home as a cherished family heirloom. Executed in exquisitely detailed, delicately sculpted relief, your collector's plate is crafted by Hallmark artisans of fine pewter. Every subtle light and shadow is brought to glowing life by meticulous hand-rubbing that burnishes each plate to a lustrous finish. Each 8-inch diameter plate is engraved on the reverse side with the poignant poem shown above. The plate will be available by direct order in a strictly limited edition of 7,500. When the edition limits have been filled, the master and molds will be destroyed. In all fairness, orders will be honored on a first-come, hrst-servexl basis. Please act promptly to ensure that you—or someone you love— will be one of the privileged few to enjoy a treasure of art as enduring as the Renaissance... as beautiful as Christmas itself.
