Ca1910 Roosevelt Bears / Teddy Bear Milk Glass Figural Plate - Original For SaleOutstanding and very rare, ca1910, Roosevelt Bears / Teddy Bears Milk Glass Plate. This fantastic early 20th century Teddy Bear Plate measures approx. 7" in diameter and features a image of the Roosevelt Bears - Teddy B. and Teddy G listening intently as their teacher reads to them from a gold gilt book. The edges of the Plate features diamond points with the upper two points being reticulated.
It should be noted that this is an original, turn of the 20th century Roosevelt Bears Plate - it is NOT an example of the much later Westmoreland Glass Company reissue / reproduction. The Plate offered here exhibits strong opalescence when held to a light source, is molded in exceptional detail and carries no manufacturer’s mark thus identifying it as an original example.
The Roosevelt Bears (Teddy B., Teddy G. and Rosa) were the creation of Seymour Eaton - his Books and the illustrations by R. K. Culver were the inspiration for the charming image on this wonderful, Milk Glass Plate.
This very rare and quite wonderful Roosevelt Bears / Teddy Bears Figural Milk Glass Plate is in very good condition - the glass is clean and there are no chips, scratches, cracks, breaks or surface wear of any kind to the glass. There is some wear to the gold gilt overpaint to the book that the teacher is reading and a factory mold mark in the form of a short, straight line at approx. 8 o’clock at the lower left hand edge of the Plate. Overall this charming Roosevelt Bears Plate is well preserved and displays beautifully. y
A very rare and very attractive, ca1910, Roosevelt Bears / Teddy Bears Milk Glass Plate and a fantastic addition to any collection!!!

Important Notes about Shipping Charges:
The amount quoted for Shipping & Handling is calculated by and is equal to the EXACT amount charged by the Post Office plus a $1.00 "packing fee" - the $1.00 fee is our only compensation for the virgin packing materials we use on all of our professionally packaged boxes as well as our cost for the salaried help that does most of our packing - as I am sure you can see, we make NO profit on the Shipping charges and, in fact, our costs are usually greater than the $1.00 fee. Please contact us if there are any issues regarding the cost of shipping.
