All real works of art look as if they were done in joy. -- Robert Henri (1865-1929)

{HISTORY}

Handpainted in 1980, this colorful turkey platter serves as both a functional dish and a cheerful piece of art. A rarity in the world of turkey platter molds with its wavy edges and rectangular shape, the painter of this project really knew what they were doing in the artistic abilities department. Complimentary red, orange, peach, pumpkin, mustard, grey and beige carry the colors of the season in the bundled cornstalks and falling leaves. Subtle painting techniques, overlapping washes and color variation add depth and unique perspective.  And then there is the big grey guy himself, handsome as can be with his red head and proud plumage.  Great for wall displays, food service or just general ooohing and ahhhing.

{SPECIAL FEATURES}

- Handpainted from a universal mold, making it 100% unique

- Signed "Duncan Enterprises 1980" on the bottom

- Unique shape (most turkey platters are either oval or round)

- The maker of the pottery mold blank from which this platter was created is so rare it has yet to be identified. That means this charmer comes with a little bit of a mysterious past - a blank (yet painted) slate for your imaginative storytelling!

{CONDITION}

No cracks or crazing marks. Bright white background. No spots or stains. There a few small chips on the rim (most likely caused from a wall hanger) but none affect the overall integrity or function of the platter and none are larger then .25" inches in length. Please see photos.

{SIZE}

Measures 14.5" inches (length) x 11" inches (width) x 1.25" inches (height)
