This is a lovely transfer-ware plate with a Frontier Locomotive as the central theme. The brown transfer has been enhanced with splashes of pink, green, blue and yellow color.
The plate is 10.25" in diameter. There are no chips, flakes, cracks, crazing or any other damage I can detect. There are expected signs of use.
The back is stamped with a shield in which is "Frontier Locomotive" under a string of stars, underneath which is "The surge of the railroad train westward tamed the wild West and opened this frontier for Americans and their economic growth." Underneath and to each side of the shield is "Oven Proof" and Brown & Richie Ltd." I can find no reference to Brown & Richie Ltd. being currently in business, only references to their lines being "discontinued".
I have one other plate from this series in the shop as well. I am always happy to combine your orders to save on shipping costs for you.
Enjoy each day!
