This adorable little Victorian paper plate signed on the back, "Louella Griffin from her teacher, Frank E. Burr" and dated Dec. 25, 1886, made by *Raphael Tuck & Sons, is definitely a little gem. It depicts a bucolic farm scene and has a spray of little blue-forget-me-not flowers in the bottom left corner, where there is an artist's signature, "Davis". The plate measures 4.0 inches in diameter, has an RTS logo on the back, and is in good vintage condition with a bit of wear from age and use - a few little marks here and there. It would be a sweet gift to pass on to a special teacher or friend.
