Shenango China 1920s French Country Style Flower Plate
A bright and cheery Shenango China flower plate in a decoration style that suggests it may have been part of a French Country series. The plate is decorated with a yellow trim bordered by dark blue at the outer and inner rim, with a band of yellow flower buds around the rim, and yellow and blue flowers in full bloom at the center.
Based on the Restaurant Ware Collectors Network's database of backstamps, this plate dates to circa 1912-1920s. I've had this plate for a few years now, periodically searching for another like it, but alas I have found none.
In great vintage condition, especially considering its age (at or near 100 years!), with no nicks, chips, cracks or crazing; only one light line marking under the glaze on the outer rim, toward the base of the plate design.
