This is a highly desirable collectible plate by Hallmark. It is dated 1978 and is made of pewter. The rim of the plate is beautifully decorated with a raised floral motif. In the center is a little boy beating his drum. The little drummer boy's drum has the date 1978 engraved on it.
The back of the plate is marked as follows: 1978, May we love with the hearts of children again, without any need to pretend; finding in each man a brother, being to each man a friend. – Karen Raven Designed by Mary Hamilton. Engraved by Dan Palmiter. Edition limited to 17,500 Maximum. Fine pewter, U.S.A. Little Gallery, ©1978 Hallmark Cards, Inc.
It measures approximately 6" in diameter.
It is in fairly good condition but there are two dents along the rim.
This would be a very nice addition to a plate collection. It would also make a very nice decoration for a child's room, appropriate for either a little boy or girl. We have three similar plates listed and they would make a very nice grouping.
