Add these Vintage 1949 Governor's Mansion Natchez dinner plates from Vogue Ceramic Industries to your summer cottage and evoke the wonderful memories of Grandma's house every time you set the table! This pattern was discontinued in 1950 and the company had just become Vogue Ceramic Industries in 1949, pinpointing the date for these plates. The Natchez pattern features a sweet pastel multicolor floral rim of pink roses, blue forget-me-nots, and yellow buttercups on garlands of green leaves and wispy vines. The scalloped rim has an embossed rope edge and gold trim, finished with an inner gold ring.
Each plate measures 10-1/4 inches in diameter. Each is marked with a gold circular script: "Governor's Mansion, Featherweight China, Vogue Ceramic Industries" surrounding a shield with a monogram. The words "Natchez" in bold gold caps and "U.S.A." complete the mark.
Six plates are offered as a set. Like most old treasures, they show signs of being well-loved. Only one plate has a chip on the front, and it is well disguised by the rope and scalloped edge. One plate has only expected minor surface scratches and some wear on the gold. Two each have a very small edge chip on the back side, neither of these show from the front. The remaining two each have larger chips, the largest being 5/16 of an inch. The chips on these (two on one plate and one on the other) are on the back and do not show from the front.
