1956 Wedgwood St. Paul's School Drury Plate Red Transfer 1 Of 2 Concord, Nh For Sale
This is plate 1 of 2 1956 St. Paul's School plates titled "Drury", manufactured by Wedgwood in England. It is part of their re-introduction of their original 1928 plate series on St. Paul's. We love the beautiful rendering of the building and nature-inspired border of squirrels, pinecones, acorns, oaks & fruit that ties the series together. This would make a thoughtful gift (even to oneself) and add superb color to any display. The last photo shows all the series plates we begin with.Condition: No chips, cracks, breaks, or repairs. The color is still vibrant, and plate is clean. Evenly crazed, with light discoloration noted more on the backside. Displays beautifully!Size: 10 3/8Maker Mark: In red underglaze: 1856-1956, a plaque of St. Paul with the school's latin motto in its borders.
