For your consideration, I offer a very scarce large 1911 calendar plate bowl. There is additional advertising for the store that either sold or gave away this bowl back in the day. The advertising, written in gold paint, is for: "Goodwin Bros., Bushwood, Md. Calendar plates were popular in this period of time but bowls with calendars are quite scarce. I think I have found only two in fifty years. The picture that contains the calendar in the center of the bowl is two handsome horse heads surrounded by the calendar which is shown within a large horseshoe frame. The colors are still vibrant and strong on this 110 year old plate. The bowl measures 9 3/4 inches o.d. wide across the top scallops and is 2 inches deep. Around the molded gently scalloped rim is a light band of green luster which was popular during this time period. The mark on the back of the plate, although quite indistinct, is for the manufacturer of the plate which is the H.R. Wylie China Co., Huntington W. Va. There are no chips, cracks or glaze crazing. The plate will be securely packed for safe transit which includes insurance.
