This plate was made by Vernon Kilns, who operated from 1931 to 1958 for Bartlett Hardware in Las Vegas and Reno. It is a heavy, deep plate with transferware depicting the Silver Stae. It has the Pipers Opera House and St Marys in Virginia City, the Kennecott Copper Pit in Ruth, Lake Tahoe, Hoover Dam and Las Vegas, the Last Frontier which shows the Overland Hotel and the Sal Sacev which neither I believe exist any more. It is quite the collector plate! It has gold miners with their mules and some foilage around the edge.
The back says in part- "Nevada- the very name spells romance. Silver and gold from its mines swelled its frontier settlements.....this is the land of the new pioneer. It's liveral laws, scenic wonders, friendly people....
It is 10.75" in diameter and has a bowl shape, isn't quite a flat plate so the top extends 1" up from the table. It has some wear around the edges but no cracks, chips, knicks or crazing.

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.
