File, Imperial

The file pattern is aptly named, with vertical saw-toothed ribs. It was also used as the exterior pattern of some Scroll Embossed bowls and compotes. Almost all pieces are marigold though an occasional amethyst piece shows up. The most unusual piece is a spittoon made from the chop plate.
