Chinese Hand Painted Porcelain Plate – Circa: Early – Mid 20th Century
This wonderful plate is 8 ½ inches in diameter and in very good condition with no chips, cracks or repairs save some loss of the design particularly around the faces and only the expected glaze pops occurring from the firing process during manufacture. This in no way compromises the quality or presentation of the piece.
It is important to note that this charming vintage Chinese porcelain plate came from the private collection of the internationally renowned collector Dorothy-Lee Jones, creator and driving force behind the Jones Museum of Glass & Ceramics in Sebago, Maine. This non-profit, publically supported museum was unique for many reasons including its focus on teaching about all aspects of glass making and history in addition to its eclectic and internationally known collection. The museum had strong ties to such organizations as the Smithsonian, Corning Museum of Glass, Philadelphia Art Museum and several others. Sadly the museum, established in 1978, filed for bankruptcy in 2005.
In addition to 8 ½ inches in diameter, this wonderful plate weighs about 15 ounces ounces, is 1 inch tall and was most likely used as a luncheon plate or perhaps for pudding or bread and butter. What a wonderful addition to your collection could this piece make! We currently have four matching plates in our inventory as viewed in the final pictures.
