Now here is a good combination of class and quality! This pair of eight inch vintage Hyalyn porcelain collector plates is adorned with the 'top of the line' automobiles of 1901 and 1904: a green Cadillac and a golden tufted Oldsmobile Curved Dash Runabout. That's the class, but the quality lies in the porcelain. The Hyalyn Company opened in 1947 in N.C. Their specialty glass formula was developed by the artists, a married couple with advanced degrees in art.
Each decorative plate measures 8" with a 3/4" curve. Each has an outer gold leaf rim, a thinner middle gold leaf circle, and a nice inner "racing ring" orange band. Some very minor gold leaf wear, hardly notable. No chips, cracks, etc. This Hyalyn porcelain mixture is one of the best, most durable ever made in the U.S.A. Both plates stamped on back by maker's signature mark. Price listed includes the pair. Both plates are the exact same size. The classic heavy ashtray (or coin catcher) matches these plates, and is 6" by 6" by 1". All pieces are sold separately. All are in excellent condition.
Hyalyn pieces are quickly becoming prized collectibles due to their beauty and durability. Car buffs take note of this special listing!
