This gorgeous State of Louisiana souvenir plate was part of a well-loved collection of vintage travel souvenirs. I believe it dates from the 1960s-1970s.
It has a very ususual square shape with rounded "cut-off" corners. It has a lovely raised relief repousse design around the scalloped rim and the rim is painted a pale blue.
It says "Louisiana" and "The Pelican State" in vintage-type lettering and has a wonderfully detailed, full-color pictures of the State Flower Magnolia, A Mississippi River Boat, the Tomb of Evangeline, The State Capitol Building, Greenwood, the War Memorial Tower, and Jackson Square in New Orleans.
The plate measures 8 3/8 inches square. There is some light crazing to be expected with age. There are no chips, hairlines or other issues, and the colors are vivid and unfaded. There is a shiny, high-gloss glaze. I would consider this piece to be in mint never-used condition.
Please visit my store for more souvenir plates, mugs, trays, salt & peppers and other items from this great collection.
