This popular pattern was introduced in 1946 by Oneida Community with their “Tudor Plate” trademark. This pattern was offered as a Betty Crocker premium by collecting coupons from boxes of selected General Mills products. An expert from one of their many ads states: “Lovely Queen Bess Pattern. Extra heavy silverplate; principal forks and spoons reinforced with additional layer of pure silver. Dramatic new Queen Bess design inspired by the Garden Rose of China.” This is an old discontinued pattern, all pieces are “estate” (previously owned). All pieces, unless otherwise noted, are original factory pieces, not monogrammed and Guaranteed to be in excellent condition.
