This is an unusual sample plate because all of the samples are for metallic lusters, including hues such as pale green copper, gold, silver, etc. 

Sample plates are made as part of the process for identifying how colors fire on white ware of different hues, and at different temperatures in the kiln. Such plates are collected and treasured for their aesthetic s as well as for how they stand as evidence of the artistic and scientific processes of creating work in clay.
