Rare Souvenir Texas Centennial Exposition Plate 1836-1936

Postcards and other paper memorabilia abound for this hundred year celebration of the statehood of Texas. But rarely do you see items such as souvenir plates, scarves, and other keepsakes from the exposition. This plate came from the DuPont "Wonderful World of Chemistry Exhibit" at the fair, and showcases its metallic gold and ceramic color paints. The plate is made in the USA though by what company it does not say. The front of the plate displays the Texas seal surrounded by the six flags that have flown over it, and also says Dallas in the center of the seal where the Expo was held. Just above the seal and between the two banks of flags flanking the seal are the words "Texas Under Six Flags". The inner border is decorated with a band of red paint and the rim is decorated with a wide and a narrow band of the metallic gold that DuPont was obviously introducing. The plate is 8.25" in diameter and in excellent condition.
