1954 Buffalo China Christmas Carol Plate Mr Fezziwigs Ball +Insert Box

1954 vintage Buffalo China Charles Dickens' Christmas Carol plate featuring the work of Buffalo pottery china artist Rix Jennings depicting Mr. Fezziwig's ball, in its original box and with original information insert. The plate front has a lightly colored drawing of Mr. Fezziwig's Ball, a script painted banner message reading "May you have a joyful holiday" across the center of the image.

The insert card cover reads "The limited editions of The Christmas Carol series of plates by Rix Jennings will, we believe, become collectors' items in the future. If you keep your set intact it may be an heirloom for your children. Merry Christmas. The Buffalo Pottery." The card inside appears to have an excerpt from The Christmas Carol.

NOTE: This is one of a few 1950s era plates I am offering from Buffalo China, which you will find featured below.

Plate reverse is marked as follows:

"Ebenezer Scrooge plays the role of both villain and hero in Dickens' Christmas Carol. Mr Fezziwig's ball was a very joyous occasion in Scrooge's life before he became rich and miserly, and before he regarded "Christmas Spirit" as "Humbug." The Spirit of "Christmas Past" permitted Scrooge to review that Christmas Eve when, as an apprentice to Mr. Fezziwig, he relived that jolly and festive Christmas party with the kind-hearted Fezziwigs and their guests.

The people who make up the Buffalo Pottery family have made this souvenir plate especially for you to wish you a Happy Holiday Season / Buffalo Pottery, Inc. / Buffalo, New York / December 25, 1954

Plate measures 9-5/8 inch in diameter.

In excellent vintage condition, with no nicks, chips, or cracks. The reverse shows evidence of the stilt marks having been ground / polished smooth/flat, and the paint transfer on the back has smeared a bit.

Prepacked weight (in original box): 1 lb. 13.5 oz.

NOTE: For those interested in this and/or any of the other Christmas plates I have listed, I'm happy to combine shipping where and to the extent possible. Feel free to message me for a more accurate weight/cost on combined shipping, making sure to provide the ship-to zip code.

Customer Reviews
I received my mugs today and I could not be happier. Packaged with great care, lovely card to say thank you, and all intact. They are better than expected, with the size I really wanted, thinner rim for sipping coffee and hot chocolate. I really have a thing for pottery mugs and these are great quality and wonderful drip glaze. Flashback Alley owner Holly is wonderful to work with, great communication, extra service all along. Thank you again! I love them.

The packages of Royal Doulton tea cups and dinner plates arrived in perfect condition. I could not be happier with the merchandise. Holly is personable and cares about the quality of the product as well as the packaging. Holly is a pleasure to work with and I will be shopping at Flashback Alley in the future. I'm so glad I found Flashback Alley!
