Various Vintage Collector’s Plates
I am offering a variety of beautiful, hand painted collector’s plates dating from appx. the 1910s-70s. All are in excellent to mint condition. No chips, cracks, or restoration/repairs of any kind.
These have been in my family for many decades — some since my grandmother’s time — and were always proudly displayed in our dining room. They were never used for serving food, never put in the dishwasher. These plates have been kept in a suitable archival environment away from direct sunlight, so the paint/pattern colors have not faded much over time.
Must be seen up close to be truly appreciated. I encourage you to come look at these in person, as the photos just don’t fully capture their beauty.
1) Noritake plate, circa 1910s-1930s. Depicts wild vegetation against a gorgeous yellow and brown background. Pattern name not given on backstamp. Original Noritake wreath stamp. $25
2) Limoges 8-sided octagon shaped antique porcelain serving plate, circa late 19th/early 20th century. Hand painted pink tea roses design over a serene pink, green and white pastel background. Inner well of plate is also octagonal and edges are gilted. Has original “B&CO Limoges, France” backstamp, dating it between 1893-1930. Very unique! $50
3) Haviland plate, signed by Hawes (artist). Gorgeous hand-painted antique floral design with tiny white, blue, and pink flowers over a brilliant orange, green and white background. The back bears the identifying mark of the Haviland & Company Limoges Porcelain Factory, (underglaze full name with “France” in green), as referenced by the “Collector’s Encyclopedia of Limoges Porcelain”, 3rd edition, by author Mary Frank Gaston…dating this piece to between 1894 and 1931. Stunning! $35
4) 6-sided small dessert serving plate. Fine china features high glaze and sparkling gold trim all around the edges. Depicts two pink roses on the vine; one large rose in full bloom, one still budding. As there is no backstamp, the manufacturer is unknown. No artist signature. A bit of a mystery, but oh so lovely and feminine — just like a woman! $20
5) Holiday China, large dinner plate. Hand painted and signed by Tapper (artist), dated 1971. Depicts a winter scene with children playing in the snow. Backstamp reads: “Holiday China V, Made in Germany.” $10
6) Large dinner plate, hand painted and signed by Hilda Shaw (artist), dated 1957. Depicts purple and blue flowers against a white/sky blue background. No backstamp or manufacturer info given at all — back of plate is completely blank. A very interesting and beautiful piece nonetheless! $15
Choose just one, or a few…or take the lot of all six for $150.
I also have vintage brass display stands/holders available for only $5.00 each (pictured). They look great with these plates! If you take all the plates, I’ll throw the holders in for free.
Why spend your money outside Oklahoma when you can buy locally and save a bundle on shipping/handling/postal insurance charges? Best of all, you need not worry about your delicate china getting lost or damaged in the mail when you pick it up right here in town!
