Porcelain souvenir plate with pale yellow over dark green shaded matte glaze, gorgeous pink roses and liberal application of gilt decorations, including a gold sponged edge. Central view of, "Main St, Lisbon, N. H." showing a horse-drawn wagon and people by the flag pole in the Lisbon, New Hampshire square. A buggy can be seen a little further down the unpaved street.
Ca 1905, this is a very showy 6 7/8 inch diameter street scene plate in excellent condition with only very slight evidence of wear to the gold trim around the plate's edge; no chips or cracks. Dark spot seen near the twelve o'clock position on the back of the plate is where a small impurity in the glaze burned dark in the kiln. Red circle backstamp reads, "WHEELOCK Made in Germany for E. R. Forbush Lisbon, N.H."
