FREE SHIPPING!! This piece is one of the old, original pieces of “His Majesty” pattern from the early 20th Century. It is Pat Pend which means it was done before the US Patent was given.
One of Johnson Brothers' most sought-after pieces, this platter will create Thanksgiving memories for your family for generations and will be a great piece to hand down. Displaying it brings a little of that holiday into your home! This pattern features a beautifully rendered "Tom Turkey" design on a high-quality, scalloped, earthenware body. This piece features Tom walking through the brush with his feathers puffed out to give him the majestic look either to attract the hens or scare the other Toms away. In the background is a wooden fence, farm house and trees. Beautiful colors of red, green and yellow enhance the brown hand engraved transfer scene. The borders of each piece are accented with a wonderful array of fruits, nuts, berries, and foliage. The platter is in excellent condition with no cracks or chips. It does have a 1/4" rough spot on the rim. Please see pictures for condition. IT IS RARE TO FIND VINTAGE AND ANTIQUE EARTHENWARE IN "LIKE NEW" CONDITION BECAUSE OF WEAR FROM USE AND AGE. TINY GLAZE FLAKES AND CRAZING IF PRESENT IS NORMAL AND ADDS CHARACTER TO EACH PIECE.
