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."
Uncommon antiques for the investor, as well as choice collectibles for the clever collector.
COLLECTION: A time machine on a shelf or a museum in the kitchen. Reach out and touch the memory of sweet childhood laughter.
