The advert is one which contains a send away slip positioned in the lower right hand corner.

The advertisement seems to be one which is aimed at both the rich and elderly, I believe this because of the plate is “edged with precious 22-carat gold which obviously is not normal when said regarding plates, meaning this plate is more likely to be used for show/decoration.

The plate is named “eyes of love” presumably because of the pose that the dog is performing, and also because of the gleam in the dog’s eye which can be seen as a sign off innocence which does tend appeal to the older readers who like dogs or just like anything youthful.

Analysis of advert

This advert is an advert that, to me, seems to appeal to older readers, aged from 50 and older, the older are seen as the people who have more money to spend on
