Antique Limoges Seaside Oregon Souvenir Plate
The edge of this antique, souvenir plate from Seaside, Oregon is a border of deep, rich green with gold accent trim. The center is a decal of fruit – grapes and strawberries plus another fruit (or perhaps a vegetable) that I can’t identify.
It is 7″ in diameter, hexagon-shaped. The bottom is marked “Limoges China.” I believe it was probably a Limoges blank that a company bought to decorate and sell for souvenirs in the early 1900s.
In very nice, antique condition, but it does have light crazing and a dent under the paint and glaze that would have happened during the manufacturing process.
This plate is extremely uncommon. At the time of this listing, I have found no others on the internet, past or present. (I do have this plate on Etsy as well.)
