These Lexington Concord Line Dinner Plates were made by Red Wing Potteries during the 1940's and 1950's. The Concord shape is a rounded square and the Lexington pattern features a large pair of dusty to deep pink hand painted roses that nearly cover the face of the plate. Accented with a deep green leaf cluster, and on a background of pale blue-gray leaves, these large roses make a very striking plate. It's easy to see why Lexington is one of the most beloved patterns in Red Wing dinnerware.
Each pottery plate measures 10-3/8 inches side to side, 11-inches across the diagonal.
There are three different marks. The reddish-pink familiar wing mark used from the early 1950's until 1958 is on two of the plates. The dark blue oval "Red Wing Pottery, Hand Painted" with an "RW" in the center that was used in the 1940's until about 1950 is on one plate. The fourth plate has the same familiar wing mark as the reddish-pink, this time in dark blue.
Two of the plates are heavily crazed but not discolored. The other two have slight crazing. The one with the oval mark has a noticeable glaze pop on the edge. There is also a dollop of paint on the back edge of one plate. (See photos.) I find no other damage.
Priced together, you will receive all four plates.
