Ultra Rare 1973 Canada Ottawa Christmas Plate W/ Original Painting James Rimmer:
This sale is for a Very Rare and Unusual CANADA Collectors Christmas Plate by Hutschenreuther.
This plate is one of a set of 12 platesissued from 1973 to 1984 commissioned by C.E.Sorvin Ltd. of Vancouver British Columbia, Canada.
The plate, which is titledParliament Building,Ottawa,was issued in1973 (the first in the series)and depicts an image of Canada's Parliament Buildings which is a reproduction of a paintingby the artist James A. Rimmer (as noted on the back of the plate).
What is so rare about this plate is that it is accompaniedwith the unsigned original paintingbyMr. Rimmer fromwhichthe image on the plate was reproduced.
The plate, which measures approximately 8 inchesis in excellent condition, with no chips, cracks, repairs or other problems. This plate was issued for the year1973.
The original art work orboard measures approximately 16inches by16 inches (this is the overall size, the plate image was a circle (approximately 12 inches in diameter) cropped from the center of the board).
The painting is in good condition with no notable damage to the 12 inch center image and would frame up in a circular matte beautifully.
I have never seen another offering of the original art work accompanying a collectors plate - a very unusual opportunity to own a special piece of Canadiana.
Please see my other itemsas I have more plates from this set, with their original art, currently up for sale!
Please note: This plate and the 2nd plate in the series (1974) are not marked as made by Hutschenreuther, although we believe they were made by Hutschenreuther, they are simply marked "Made in W. Germany", all the rest of the series are marked as made by Hutschenreuther.
