Antique Sterling China Plate Advertisment


Shipping to United States: $9.00

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

When will I receive my refund for a damaged product.

I will happily refund for anything damaged during shipping. However, I must receive pictures of the damage, the box and the wrapping. I will refund you as soon as I receive this in order to file a claim with USPS or Shipsurance.

How much is a custom mermaid?

It depends on the size and the work involved. Custom mermaids start at $50.

I saw an item like this on EBay for less. Can you match the price?


Can you hold an item until I get paid?

No. I have done this before, taken the item out of inventory and then the person never bought. This causes me to have to pay to re-list the item and miss out on other potential sales. Please do not ask me to do this.

Do you ship internationally?

Yes, I do!
