This old bread or salad plate is from the Stockyard Restaurant of Phoenix Arizona. Across one side is the restaurant name with a small cactus. The opposite side has the name Tovrea with an image of a large cow. This is probably paying homage to the cattle baron Edward Tovrea and the Tovrea Land & Cattle Co. of Phoenix which was established in 1919. Apparently, the Stockyard Restaurant opened in 1947, closed temporarily in the 1950’s due to a fire and then reopened. Arizona’s original steakhouse is still in business today. The plate is tan with brown decoration. On the bottom is the Wellsville China logo for the company in Ohio. I believe this small plate is from the 1950’s.
It measures about 7 1/8” in diameter and is in good condition with minimal scuff and scratch wear and no damage.
