Knowles Orange Flowers Plate
|| for item M-1055
This lovely Edwin M. Knowles 7" plate is trimmed in 22 karat gold. I have tried to find the pattern name (even Replacement China has it listed as a number as opposed to a pattern name). The backstamp is of a ship in green. I believe this backstamp was changed in 1940. It is numbered as 37 7 which I believe is manufacture date of July, 1937. I have many pieces and some of them have a 1938 date. It is also noted on the back that they are union made. I hope the photo will show the deep embossing that covers the rim. There are no chips, cracks or breaks. There are some light utensil marks, some of which are on the floral design. All in all, it is in pretty good condition for something approaching 70 years old. I have many pieces of this pattern including two sugar bowls. If you are just browsing and not interested in the dishes and know the name of the pattern, I would be thrilled to know it. If you are interested, please email me your zip code to calculate postage.
