Popular Souvenir Plates has captured this versatility with examples
Souvenir plates have long been representatives of America's history, whether commemorating special events or depicting places. These plates have come into their own as collectibles for several reasons, including their affordability and the fact that they come in a variety of shapes and designs.
Popular Souvenir Plates has captured this versatility with examples that span the time from the 1880s to the present. More than 530 color photographs document plates depicting all fifty states and Canada, along with a sampling of European designs, each with its current market value. The work of American firms represented are Harker Pottery, Homer Laughlin, Kettlesprings Kilns, Edward M. Knowles China Company, Sabin Industries, Salem China Company, Syracuse China Company, Vernon Kilns, and many others. The work of noted English potters such as Staffordshire, Adams, Jonroth, and Rowland and Marsellus are present. A chapter on foreign plates shows a variety of foreign-made souvenir ware including the beauty of "Made in Bavaria" and "Made in Germany" souvenir plates. This book with price guide is a valuable reference for anyone with an interest in souvenir plates.
