This beautiful commemorative china plate was made by the McCool Pottery Company in East Liverpool, Ohio to commemorate the construction of the Panama Canal. There is a gold trim along the outer edge. Some of this trim has faded or worn off of the surface. The center of the plate has beautiful art depicting the famous Culebra Cut (Gaillard Cut) under construction. The art was probably painted using a real photo. The back of the plate has " D. E. McCool Pottery Company East liverpool Ohio " stamped on the back. The words " Compliments of Ira E. Trauch, Bedminster, PA.." are neatly printed below the painting of the Culebra Cut. This plate is very nice and in very good condition. There is a lot of crazing as expected, multiple small manufacturing flaws and several light scratches, but there are no chips or dings. I did not try to clean this plate.

Diameter = 21 cm (8 inches) ; Weight = 366 gm (13- ounces)

Most of the plates that I sell are vintage. It should be expected that these items will have some sort of wear or patina unless listed as "mint". Flaws created during the manufacturing may not be mentioned as these are part of the character of vintage or antique items. These flaws may, however, be mentioned if they cause a structural defect affecting the items integrity. I do provide large photos of each item so that you can see the condition. Thank you for your interest in this item.
