This beautiful commemorative china plate was made to commemorate the opening of the Panama Canal. There is a gold floral trim along the outer edge. The art on the face of the plate depicts a map of the Panama Canal Zone surrounded by American flags and small monthly calendars for the year 1915. I do not see any manufacturer's mark on the reverse side of the plate. The words " Complements of Gately & Fitzgerald Co. Allentown, PA. XMAS 1914." are neatly printed below the map. This plate is very good condition. There is a lot of crazing as expected, but there are no chips or dings. There are several small manufacturing defects (surface bubbles, etc.) as expected on all of these old plates. I did not try to clean this plate.

Diameter = 19 cm (7.5 inches) ; Weight = 302 gm (11- 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.
