Humpback Turretfish Collectible PlateRegular price $48.00
The plates in this release are all ocean-themed, an homage to post-pandemic beach vacations we all hope to take.
In this design, we've hand-pressed a comical illustration, taken from a 19th-century natural history book, of a Humpback Terretfish onto a restaurant-ware platter manufactured by the Shenango China Company of Pennsylvania.
Shenango was one of the largest producers of restaurant china in the USA in the mid 20th century. The company marked all of their plates with a letter and number which enabled us to discover that this particular plate was produced in 1951.
Our founder, Susan Davis, is a zealous collector of all things old, beautiful and interesting. While button hunting, she often other collectibles she cannot bear to leave behind and this is how we amassed a substantial collection of antique and vintage china plates.
Your plate will be one of only four in the world.
