This very scarce 1930s 3-section juvenile feeding plate can be seen on page 82 of the original edition of Stern's Guide to Disney Collectibles. It's just under 8" diameter and has decaled illustrations of two of the original Disney cartoon Three Little Pigs plus the Big Bad Wolf in each of the plate sections. Each design is signed with the likeness of Walt Disney's signature.
The plate was made by Salem China Company under their Patriot China mark. The back is marked S.C. Co. Patriot China, Made in America, Mfgd. by permission Walt Disney Enterprises. The heavy plate has no chips, flakes, or hairlines but it does have stained crazing and there is quite a bit of wear and fading to the largest decal, the fiddling pig at the lower center. The wolf and other pig decals have much less wear. The black spot on the back to the right of the mark appears to be an impressed number 8 with an overabundance of ink.
Specializing in antique and vintage Christmas all year round, plus antique to Mid-Century copper.
