1914 Calendar Pottery Plate w/ Young Boy & Swiss Alps Mountain Scene
This is a Dated Calendar Pottery Plate that is from the Year of 1914 and measures 8 1/4" in length. It has a Cobalt Blue Border with the 1914 Monthly Calendar shown on the front from January through December of that year. It shows an Arch with Climbing Ivy on it and the Calendar Months are shown like Stacks of Big Square Stones making up the arches on either side and has Bricks that continue overhead the Arches with a banner that has the Year Date of 1914 in the middle. It is a pleasant Swiss Alps Mountain Scene with Mountains shown in the background. There is a Young Swiss Boy with Ash Blonde Hair that is standing under the Arch on a gravel Pathway. He is barefooted, wearing a Swiss Cap with a Feather in it and is wearing a Blue Denim Overalls with Suspenders, with holes in the leg part and is wearing a White tattered Shirt. He has a Ribbon around his neck and he is holding on to it with both hands and on one end there is a Pocket Watch looking device that has the Year Date of 1914 on it. It has the following on it "Compliments of Faggard Grocery Co. The Good Stuff Store". on the back, it is marked " Sterling ( a Crown ) China. ( although, it is not China, it is Pottery ) It is somewhat crazed as it is "Pottery" and does seem to have age crazing from being almost 100 years old and has a brown color on the back with a couple of age lines on the back that do not show from the front. The front is crazed and is a Cream color instead of a White color. the subject matter is the most interesting Calendar Plate that we have ever seen.
