A fine and unusual transferware souvenir plate for St. Augustine, Florida manufactured by Royal Worcester for Greenleaf & Crosby, a Florida jewelry store that's been in business since 1897.
The plate features a medal of Ponce De Leon in the center surrounded by a decorative border with scenes of old St Augustine.
The plate is 9.75" in diameter.
Condition is excellent: there's some wear to the surface but no chips cracks or repairs.
Marked on the back with the Worcester backstamp. There is a dot under the T in "Worcester", but I cannot correlate that to any known dating system for Worcester. If I had to guess, I'd say the plate was made in 1965 for the 500th anniversary of the settlement of St Augustine.
