This was a plate that was given to customers at a Grocery Store in Corvallis Oregon in the early 1900's. It has "Compliments of A. Hodes Your Grocer Corvallis, Oreg" at the top. It has beautiful golds and tans mottled on it with a gilded design and writing. I don't believe the mottled look is original, I think it happened with age. A lovely young lady graces it with a scarf in her hair and around her neck and it has a star in the center of her head.
It is 6.25" in diameter, has a scalloped edge and is very thin for a porcelain plate which is what Sterling was known for. (Sterling later became Limoges). It has one chip which you can see in one of the pictures with a crack. The crack doesn't go all the way through because it doesn't show on the front, nor can you hardly notice the chip on front.
Payment must be recieved prior to shipping. I fulfill your order within 24 hours after receiving your order M-F. If for some reason, I am unable to ship with in 2 business days, I will let you know so you can decide if it can wait, however, I strive never to do that. I do not usually work the weekend so if you order something Friday nite, it will most likely not ship until Monday.
I use standard shipping costs for different size items. In reality it may be more to ship or may be a little less. What you see is what you get & I believe my prices reflect that and are worth it. Whatever shipping cost is on the item is what you pay. With the cost of different boxes etc. it just makes sense to use a flat fee for certain items. I don't add the cost of mailing products to the item, I depend on my shipping costs to include that. I have had instances when my international shipping has been way off, and if that is the case, I do refund that part of the shipping cost. I insure EVERYTHING.
