Description:Waiting for your purchase is this lovely blue and white commemorative plate by WEDGWOOD. The plate is made of fine porcelain material. It was made in England. On front in the center is a transfer design done in blue and white that depicts a house with a white picket fence in front. This is the Sibley House and the plate commemorates its centennial. The Sibley House was acquired by the St. Paul, Minnesota chapter of the D.A.R. in 1910 and used as an historical museum.
General Henry Hastings Sibley was the first governor of Minnesota and a partner in the American Fur Company. He built Sibley House in 1835 and was a Delegate to Congress in 1849 from Minnesota Territory. He is considered a pioneer of Minnesota. This history is printed on the back of the plate, and there is a representation of his signature. On back also is the Wedgwood mark. Another mark is impressed into the back, but I cannot read it because of the heavy glaze. On front, the plate is edged with a rope-like rim. A wide border is ribbed or gadrooned. This is a terrific plate for the Wedgwood collector or the blue and white collector. It is especially important is you are in DAR or from Minnesota. It is in perfect condition.
Measurement: The plate measures 10 1/2 inches diameter (across)
Condition: EXCEPTIONAL---PERFECT---no chips, cracks, or crazing--color bright
