Crown Potteries Co Vintage Floral Plate - Pink Roses with Blue Stripe C.P.Co - 1920's
I believe that art not only enriches life but that it makes one more sane and sympathetic, more observant and understanding, regardless of whatever age it springs from, whatever subjects it represents. Abbey Aldrich Rockefeller
Made in Evansville OH in the 1920's by Crown Potteries, this pretty floral plate would be a perfect match for a blue gingham cloth and a basket full of lunch on a golden picnic afternoon. Stamped with the C.P. Co crown makers mark on back it is absent of both the manufacturing date and pattern name which adds a little mystery, leaving room for you to make up your pattern name for it.
Crown Potteries was started by an English transplant who moved to Indiana in the 1880's. Unfortunately, he died just a couple of years into business leaving Crown Pottery to shuffle between a few different owners before it merged in the 1890's with Illinois-based Peoria Pottery Company. Crown Potteries produced popular dishware up until the mid-1950's before closing. Known for their beautiful designs and quality craftsmanship, C.P. Co dishes remain popular among collectors today.
