Here is a super scarce Vernon Kilns plate!
This oversized piece was made exclusively for the 1956 Republican National Convention that took place in San Francisco.
The front of the plate features the California state seal near the top. Below the state seal is the attribution:
"The People of California
Welcome You to the
REPUBLICAN NATIONAL CONVENTION
SAN FRANCISCO, 1956
Gooodin J. Knight
This plate is made on the Ultra shape, and has a deep blue band around the rim. The plate measures 12 3/4" in diameter. On the backside, the description reads as follows:
"This plate is a souvenir of the 1956
Republican National Convention in San Francisco,
California, and was presented by the California
State Host Committee for the Convention.
The San Francisco meeting marks the
first time in our Nation's history that the Republican
Party Convention has been held in the West. It is
significant that the occasion marks the centennial
year of the first National Convention of the Party
whose first Presidential candidate was a Californian,
John C. Fremont.

Below this dedication is the backstamp "Made by Vernon Kilns U.S.A."
The plate is in excellent condition. It has no flaws, damage, or signs of wear anywhere. This rare item was given out at the 1956 convention, and was never available for sale, so only those who attended the convention ever owned one. If you collect rare Vernon Kilns plates, or Republican party memorabilia, then this would make an exceptional addition to your collection!
