A very hard to find Manning Bowman Reticulated Plate that measures 10 inches in diameter. Manning Bowman & Co. began producing items in the 1800's. They produced silver-plate coffee sets, copper coffee pots, toasters, and other kitchen items. During the Art Deco period they produced bar-ware and shakers. Chrome items by this company are very collectible. The company made luxury items up until the early 40's when it went out of business due to Chrome shortages (WWII). The back of the plate is stamped "MB Means Best, Trademark Manning Bowman & Co., Meriden Conn. Made in USA".
