Artist Signed Deldare Ware Plate by Buffalo Pottery from 1909 (date in mark)
These plates frequently sell for $175 to $270 (and up depending on scene, condition and artist's signature) and the reason why this example is being offered for less is that it has a small, minute rim chip that is not readily noticeable when displayed on a shelf or wall (please only use safe plate hangers). There are nine photos and four of the photos show the rim chip (photos # 3, 7, 8, and 9). In fact, there is a red pen pointing to the chip since it is hard to see unless viewed up close. The chip is located at about the 4:30 o'clock location on the front of the plate (or about the 7:30 o'clock location on the back of the plate). The chip has not been professionally repaired, however it has some reversible cosmetic touch up on the front side only (see full condition notes below).
What makes this plate still worthy of display and collection is that the condition is superb with no wear, knife marks or stacking scratches so often seen on plates more than 100 years old. Furthermore, the artist's name is very legible and the dated mark on the back side is very clearly printed with the year of production, 1909 displayed twice. All of these attributes make this plate a nice addition to any home or collection, especially since a perfect example without the chip would easily command $250 to $325+ at a major antique show in New York, Boston, LA or Chicago. And as my return policy notes, the buyer may send this plate back for a refund (minus shipping costs) if they are not 100% satisfied (there are no restocking fees for items under $500).
SIZE: This plate measures 9 1/4 inches across and stands about 1 1/8 inches tall along its rim. It is a perfect size for displaying on a shelf or along a mantle or china cabinet and will certainly capture attention in any setting.
CONDITION: This plate is in perfect condition EXCEPT for the one small chip as noted above. The chip is about 1/4 inches long on the front of the plate and has removed the glaze and about 1/16 inch of the outermost edge (see all photos). The same chip removed a larger section of the glaze on the back of the plate to expose white clay (see photo of full back of plate). The chip is very small, and is not readily noticeable from the front. There are nine photos and four of the photos show the rim chip (Photos # 3, 7, 8, and 9). And to make sure that the buyer can see it, there is a close up of red pen pointing to the chip (Photo #7). The chip is located at about the 4:30 o'clock location on the front of the plate (or about the 7:30 o'clock location on the back of the plate). The chip has not been professionally repaired, however it has some reversible cosmetic touches added to the front side only that could be more professionally filled in if one had to have a perfect plate. If the buyer is not 100% satisfied with this plate, then they may send it back post marked by 7 days for a refund minus shipping costs.
SHIPPING: This plate weighs 1 lbs all by itself and when properly boxed the total shipping weight will be about 3 to 3 1/2 lbs. US mainland buyers pay $12.80 for well packed and insured USPS Priority Mail (or less if you live nearby or in an adjacent state, simply email me for a revised quote). A slower shipping option is also available, too (see shipping section below for Parcel Post option). No handling or packing fees are ever charged and the item will be double boxed for maximum protection. All international buyers will pay only the exact shipping costs for all verifiable locations outside the continental US mainland. Please note that import duties, taxes and other charges are not included in the item price or shipping costs and these additional charges are the Buyer's responsibility. We do offer a petition for VAT relief on the behalf of the buyer which may help reduce certain import taxes should your country allow such petitions for items over 100 years old. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to purchasing this item -- thanks.
RETURN POLICY: Satisfaction and peace of mind are guaranteed for all Docs Antiques listings -- please refer directly to our Service Pledge and our Return Policy for full details.

Items damaged during shipping are covered by insurance and while this rarely happens because we double box, we will gladly help you file your claim should it ever be necessary (to date, we have had only two claims for damage from shipping in over 7 years). Of course, never send an item back that was damaged by shipping since that will void the original insurance. Instead, contact us for help and we will gladly assist.
