What's On This Page:
to The Plate Lady
® web site.
We are here to help you
in any way we can.
*We maintain pictures of Limited Edition collectible plates
that are not in stock within our plate galleries so that our
visitors may view these fine art plates for reference. We
try to show entire series whenever possible, as we have not
found this service available elsewhere. However, pictures
of plates that we have never had in stock may be missing.
Pictures are representative only and are not of the actual
product. Representative picture colors may differ slightly
from the actual product and borders may not always be viewable
in the picture. You can always be assured that any new or
previously cherished plate we sell will be in mint condition
. Damaged collectibles are marked as unfit for sale and will
not be sold to customers unless they have prior full knowledge
of the defects and still want them.
* We also offer decorative display accessories for one-stop
shopping convenience. These are of the highest quality available
and have been hand selected by The Plate Lady to be sold in
her online store. The Plate Lady refuses to sell anything
that would potentially fail or cause damage to collectibles.
* We also offer other art collectibles that would be considered
home decor gift ware. We have a number of authentic museum
reproductions, as well as artistic interpretations of authentic
antiquities. We feel that reproductions offer a cost effective
and responsible way to bring the charm of the ancient world
into your home or office for your personal enjoyment.
To Use Our Site:
We provide a complete web site map on almost every page of
our web site.
*The map can be found on either side of each page,
Limited Edition plates are on the left and Home Decor Art
& Display Accessories are on the right. except the
home page, where it is found below the entrance pictures,
and the plate list pages. This is to make it easier to navigate.
You can use this site map to jump to any page on our site,
just clicking on one link.
*The few pages that do not contain this map have links
at the top or bottom of the page that will take you to other
areas of the site that do have the complete map on them.
We also included 'What's On This Page' sections - located
at the center/top of most pages - that will jump you down
to specific areas of interest on the page. They are similar
to the links at the top of this page. 'Return To Top' links
are also provided after each section for your convenience.
We also have a traditional 'site
map' page that may be of help. It organizes the pages
by category and may be helpful in searching.
2. Search Boxes and Plate Lists:
We have placed a search box at the bottom of each page, so
that you can search for specific artists and plate series.
We also maintain an extensive plate list that can be re-sorted
alphabetically by the artist's last name, the plate name,
the series name, or the manufacturer's name at the click of
a button. This provides help when you only know the artist's
name or just the plate name. However, these lists do not contain
every plate on our web site.
*You can find this list by clicking on the links to the
top-left corner of this page that are under the heading that
says 'Plate Lists".
*Please be patient while the plate list page is loading
for the first time. This is an extensive list and may take
up to 3 minutes to load completely, depending on the speed
of your connection.
*Unfortunately there is nothing we can do about the loading
time required, because we could not make the list sortable
if it were split up, but we hope that the information and
images we have provided will make your wait worthwhile.
*However, once the page has loaded for the first time, the
loading time will be shorter and you can quickly revisit it
anytime you like.
*This is because your own internet browser automatically saves
a copy of each web site page you visit on the internet in
a temporary folder on your computer and only has to re-copy
the web site page when the page has new information on it.
*You can clear out your temporary internet files (pages) whenever
you like by selecting 'Internet Options' on your browser.
However, as stated above, web site pages will load faster
when they are available in your temporary folder.
Once you are on the 'plate list' you can resort it by one
of four categories: By the Artist's Last name, By the Series
name, By the Plate's Name, or By the Manufacturer's name.
By clicking on the links at the top of the columns that say
'by plate name',
or 'by artist'
that column will be sorted alphabetically from A - Z. In that
way you can research what plates were make by an artist, what
plates were made by a manufacturer, what plates are in a series,
and/or what plates have similar names.
* If you click the link a second time, the plate order
will be reversed (ie. from A-Z to Z-A). Clicking a third time
will return it to A - Z order.
*Available pictures are accessed by clicking on the name of
You can click on one of the 'more info' buttons to go to the
page on our site where you can order the corresponding plate.
You will find an 'add to cart' link next to the plate's description.
*** You can press and hold CTL while pressing F to search
the list page if needed.
You will need to use your back button or the links at
the top of the page to return to the gallery pages when you
are finished looking at the plate list or you can use one
of the 'more info' links.
