Here's a great plate from 1916 with lots of interest to it. It's 7 3/8" in diameter. The plate is white with gold decoration and a colorful transferred design. It was a promotional piece and a give away for a store in New Haven, Connecticut On the top it reads "Compliments of I. M. Adler" - a store selling wines and liquors and also a steamship ticket agent. It was located at 186 E. Chapel St. in New Haven. The romantic image of the Indian Girl in the center of the plate added a lot of fun to the piece. The plate is also a calendar plate for 1916. So the age is considerable - exactly 100 years. The plate's makers mark is on the back. The condition is quite good with just the expected faint crazing under the glaze.
