Description

The Aurora body style by Wick China Company is often marked with a circular mark that says Aurora China and has a "T" a "W" and a "C" overlayed in the middle.  This body style has an oval footprint and flares out slightly from the neck of serving pieces to a mid-level waist, then tapers down to the scalloped base.  It has verticle lines that divide the front and back into three sections.  Heavy embossed scrolls accent these indented lines as well as the rims.  The "C" shaped hanldes also feature scrolling making them more elegant and easier to hold..
