Antique 19th C Flow Blue Commemorative Plate - Americana

Lovely antique, flow blue plate that has bled through to the back. This plate displays the same design as Martha Washington's White House service with her initials in gold at the center; although her plates, designed by a representative of the Dutch East India Company, were white with green rings joined by gold around the states, a red banner, and a gold star whose fifteen points indicated the states. The banner reads "Decus et tutamen ab ill;" and my Latin being rusty, when I put it through a translator it yields "From Him glory and defense." It's interesting to note that New Jersey appears as simply "Jersey." This is a fine piece of Americana.

19th C semi porcelain plate made by Wood & Son in England for the retailer W. J. S. Sanborn & Co. of South Framingham, Massachusetts. It seems ironic that these plates were produced in Great Britain, no? Beautiful flow blue under the glaze, and the gold is in very good condition, much better than you usually find, with only the most minor wear. Measures 8 3/4" in diameter.

A wonderful piece of Americana with crossover appeal to collectors of Flow Blue or Blue & White. Enjoy!
