Vintage Warwick China Platter Woodland Pattern Botanical
IN EVERY WALK WITH NATURE, ONE RECEIVES FAR MORE THAN HE SEEKS. JOHN MUIR
Made by the Warwick China Company, this beautiful platter in the Woodland pattern is a stunner of a dish. Based in Wheeling, West Virginia, Warwick produced dishware from the 1880s to 1951, supplying both households, restaurants, and hotels with beautiful dishes for over six decades.
The Woodland pattern features pink, orange, peach and pale tomato-red flowers nestled among bright green basil-like leaves, and contains a thin gold rim around the edge. It is hard to find platters in this pattern these days, making this one a prized gem among vintage dishware.
It is not dated as far as specific year of manufacture so all that we know for certain right now is that it was made prior to the closing of the pottery in 1951.

In lovely vintage condition, this platter looks practically brand-new on the front side. There are no cracks or crazing. There is a couple of barely noticeable utensil marks which are visible only when you hold the dish at an angle towards a light source. The back has a tiny chip near the rim that measures 1/8th" inch in diameter and three surface chips which were caused by the prongs of a plate hanger at some point in its life. These surface chips are very insignificant and are often found on vintage dishware that was been used as wallhangings instead of serving ware.
Measures 11" inches (length) 8.25" inches (width) and weighs 1.7lbs.
A beautiful compliment to the table year round, this platter would look especially beautiful on the Thanksgiving table and looks absolutely stunning with both antique and modern dishware thanks to its classic appeal.
