WS George/Radisson Antique “Colonial Couple” 22K Gold Plates, Set of 2

WS George/Radisson Antique “Colonial Couple” 22K Gold Plates, Set of 2

Here we have a highly sought-after Victorian era pair of plates from the famous WS George/Radisson line. Highest quality fine china lavishly trimmed in real 22 Karat GOLD.

The decal depicts a man and a woman dancing, being serenaded by a flutist. This popular design is alternatively known as the “Colonial Couple,” also called “George and Martha Washington.” The pattern is GEO340 if you want to do some research on the various designs available in this series.

W.S. George started making their Radisson dinnerware lines around 1910, right after they purchased the East Palestine Pottery Co, and continued to produce it until around 1940. Radisson is based on the popular Haviland Ransom shape. The flatware is gently scalloped & embossed. The W.S. George Pottery Co. went out of business in the late 1950s. As best as I can ascertain based on family history and research, these two plates would date from appx. 1910-1930.

Backstamps read: “Imported H.K. China, 22 Karat. Radisson — W.S. George. Made in USA.” One plate is numbered #9978; the other is numbered #018B.

The rim of the plates are covered in a 2-inch ornate 22 Karat gold border, reminiscent of that done by Wheeling. With the price of gold on the rise, these plates are a worthwhile investment for that reason alone (but they look soooo good on your wall or in your china cabinet, too!).

Both plates are in excellent condition, with only a couple of small wear marks. Backstamps are somewhat faded in spots due to age and backs show some slight discoloration spots from where the original brass hangers were on the plates for many years. No cracks or chips on the plates at all.

These were NEVER used for serving food and never put in the dishwasher. They were part of my grandmother’s fine china collection and were proudly displayed in her home until her death in 1963. Ever since, we have kept them in our china cabinet, away from dust, humidity, and other environmental pollutants, so they are nearly as perfect today as they looked when new nearly a century ago. These are simply gorgeous…must be seen up close to be fully appreciated. Photos just don’t quite do them justice.

These are very fine plates with some great classic artistry, and would make a fine addition to any collection of vintage/antique china.

PRICE: $60 for the set of two plates

CASH ONLY
BUYER MUST PICK UP IN SW OKC

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!

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.

ITEM DETAILS:

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.

CASH ONLY.

Antique 1940 Currier & Ives Collectors Plates – Set of 8

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Antique 1940 Currier & Ives Collectors Plates – Set of 8

I am offering for sale a complete set of 8 collectible antique Currier & Ives plates from 1940. These belonged to my grandmother who cherished and cared for them until her death in 1963 — at which time they were passed down to us. These plates were proudly displayed in our dining room for the past 40+ years and come with the original brass hanging hooks.

While it is difficult to part with these treasures, my mother has decided it is time to sell them as she is in poor health now and needs help paying her medical bills. We would ideally like to see these plates go to a loving home where they will be enjoyed for many more generations to come.

DESCRIPTION:

The publishing firm of Currier & Ives created the most popular and highly regarded lithographs of quintessentially American scenes ever produced. The quality, vast scope and engagingly populist style of their works have made their names synonymous with an idealistic vision of 19th-century American promise and optimism.

These particular Currier & Ives plates are highly sought-after by collectors today. Each plate is made of the finest quality materials and contains colored engravings of eight famous Currier & Ives lithographs. Every plate is 10.5 inches in diameter and decorated with a border design of pink and yellow roses and flowers with a smaller white flower dispersed between the larger ones.

Backstamp on every plate contains the title of each lithograph and manufacturer’s stamp that reads as follows: “Colored Engravings for the People. Published by N. Currier, Lithographer, 2 Spruce St. (nearly opposite City Hall), New York. For Sale Here. Adams, Est. 1657, England.” This refers to William Adams and Sons, Ltd. on Tunstall & Stoke, England. All plates in this series are dated 1940.

All plates are in very good to excellent condition; no chips, cracks, or repairs. A couple of the plates show some light crazing on the back ONLY (front of plate/image not affected). There is also some slight discoloration in a few spots on the back of the plates where the brass hangers were positioned for many years. See photos in our gallery slideshow for images of the front and back of each individual plate to assess them for yourself.  These images are available at http://MomsEmporium.wordpress.com

PLATES IN THIS SERIES ARE:

Plate #1) “Winter in the Country — The Old Grist Mill” (1864) Depicts a snow-covered homestead, grist mill, and frozen stream.

Plate #2) “The Road — Winter” (1853) Depicts a couple riding through the snow in a sleigh.

Plate #3) “The Star of the Road” (1849) Depicts a Southern Belle riding around the plantation in a horse-drawn carriage.

Plate #4) “American Express Train” (1864) Depicts a steam locomotive passenger train crossing America in the 1800s.

Plate #5) “A Midnight Race on the Mississippi” (1875) Depicts the Vicksburg, Natchez and New Orleans steamboat and the Eclipse riverboat trailing behind on the Mississippi River.

Plate #6) “Home to Thanksgiving” (1867) Depicts a farm family gathering for the holiday and exchanging greetings.

Plate #7) “The Rocky Mountains — Imigrants Crossing the Plains” (1866) Depicts a wagon train and early western settlers crossing the Rockies.

Plate #8) “Husking” Depicts early American farmers husking corn. From an 1860 Currier & Ives lithograph.

PRICE: $ 250

CASH ONLY

SORRY, DELIVERY/SHIPPING NOT AVAILABLE FOR THIS ITEM. BUYER MUST PICK UP IN SW OKC.

If purchased individually, these plates run around $40 each on the current collector’s marketplace and would cost you upwards of $350 with shipping, handling and insurance. But you can have them all for only $250 by buying locally. You’ll also save a bundle on shipping charges. No worries about these fragile treasures getting lost or damaged in the mail!

1948 Oneida Morning Star Community Flatware Set 45 pcs + 5 bonus pieces

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

1948 Oneida Morning Star Community Silverplate Flatware Set

45 pieces + 5 bonus pieces

I am pleased to offer this 45 piece lot of Oneida-Heirloom Community Silverplate Flatware in the “Morning Star” pattern which was Oneida’s premier pattern in 1948.

This set belonged to my grandmother and was passed down to my parents after Grandma’s death in 1963. Ever since, we have only used it on holidays and special occasions in combination with our Noritake 1930s fine china (also for sale – see our other listings on the main page of this blog.) The silverware set has been kept in its’ original case for more than 50 years inside our family china cabinet, well protected from dust, humidity and environmental pollutants.

From the manufacturer’s literature (circa 6-17-1948):
Morning Star is perfect for traditional or modern settings. Deep sculptured carving and pierced detail add depth and richness to the design. It has the appearance of heavy hand-made silver. Every knife, fork and spoon in Community Silverplate has been made with Oneida’s unique balanced plating process. This assures a heavy plating of pure silver scientifically placed on each piece for maximum life and additional layers of pure silver are placed on the back of most pieces at the points of greatest wear.
This is a discontinued pattern. All pieces, unless otherwise noted, are original factory pieces, not monogrammed and in very good to excellent condition.

The original Oneida Morning Star Set includes:

1 Master Butter Knife 6 3/4″

7 Dinner Knives 9″

7 Dinner Forks 7.5″

7 Salad Forks 6 1/4″

2 Teaspoons 6″

2 Tablespoons 8.5″

7 Iced Tea Spoons 7 1/4″

1 Sugar Spoon 6″

1 Gravy Ladle 9″

1 Cold Meat Fork 8 3/4″

1 Olive/Pickle Fork 6.5″

8 Soup Spoons 8″

Additionally, you get 5 BONUS pieces that were not part of the original Oneida set. These are of similar vintage (late 1940s/early 1950s). The manufacturer is unknown, but they are obviously of fine quality — see photos above.

3 extra butter knives

1 sugar cube holder

1 slotted teaspoon

PRICE: $150

That’s 45 Oneida Morning Star pieces, plus 5 bonus pieces – 50 pieces in all for one great price!

If you purchased each of these pieces separately, the cost would be around $500. But you can have them ALL in this lovely set for only $150.

Why purchase fine vintage silver from a dealer who lives hundreds or even thousands of miles away when you can keep your money right here in Oklahoma? If you purchased this heavy item via mail order, the shipping cost would be very high. By picking it up locally, you save a bundle on shipping, packing, insurance, and handling fees.

* Includes all original documentation from Oneida; certificate of authenticity and guarantee, plus booklet.

* Comes with its original tarnish resistant wooden storage chest lined in blue velvet.  The chest measures approx 17″ x 12″.  The chest has a few minor scratches & nicks, but is in much better shape than most Oneida flatware chests of the same age being offered on the marketplace today. Interior of chest is also is very good condition — only one loop for butter knife on inside of the lid is broken. Chest was kept inside our family china cabinet for nearly 50 years, sparing it from dust, dirt, scratching and temperature/humidity fluctuations.

* All pieces are in very good condition with no noticable loss of plating and have only light signs of wear and typical mild surface scratches from use. A few pieces have a couple of tiny black specks. I will leave it up to the new owner to polish these pieces as desired by personal preference. Overall, a very nice set!

CASH ONLY
