1940s Salem China Independence hall


Shipping to United States: $21.00

This is an Imperial Service plate made by Salem China in Ohio which operated from 1898 to 1967. Many of the Imperial Service you see is gilded around the band but this one isn't. It shows Independence hall Philadelphia in the center and then around the band has the Liberty Bell, the Betsy Ross House and more along with costs of laurel and other decoration. It is drawn in black with lots of green and yellow and brown.

It is 10 5/8" in diameter (a large plate) and has no cracks, chips or crazing. Great to use or hang on a wall. Also would make a great gift for someone homesick for Philly.

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!
