Rare and very attractive, ca1898, Spanish American War Era Transferware China Platter / Charger featuring images of 4 United States Navy Warships from the "Great White Fleet" along with a portrait of Admiral George Dewey - The Hero of Manila Bay.


This wonderful. large size Souvenir / Commemorative Charger measure approx. 13" in diameter and features a fantastic image of the USS Battleship Maine at the center surrounded by a portrait of Admiral Dewey at the top, a view of the armored cruiser USS New York at the bottom, a view of the Battleship USS Indiana at the left and a view of the gunboat USS Nashville at the right. The images of the ships and of Admiral Dewey are executed using a soft, sepia tone transfer while the edges of the Charger and the water beneath the ships feature a wonderful pastel blue decoration. This Plate is marked on the back by the manufacturer - The Sebring Pottery Company of East Liverpool, Ohio.


The surface of the Charger is beautifully molded with foliate and flourish decorations that form scalloped "frames" around each of the images as well as the Platter's rim. The large size and the high quality decoration make this wonderful Charger an impressive and very attractive display piece - one of the nicest Spanish American War China pieces we have ever encountered!!

The surface is clean and crisp with no staining, foxing, discoloration or wear to the decoration.

There are 2 small chips on the back side of the rim of the Charger as can be seen in the scans below but there are no other cracks, chips damage or repairs.


A rare and very beautiful, ca1898, Spanish American War Era Transferware China Platter / Charger featuring images of 4 United States Navy Warships from the "Great White Fleet" along with a portrait of Admiral George Dewey and a fantastic addition to any collector!!!
