This fantastic vintage Iowa State souvenir plate is part of a well-loved collection of travel souvenirs. I believe it dates from the 1940s- 1950s. It is a heavy porcelain plate with an intricate gold filigree transfer design around the rim. It says "Iowa The Hawkeye State" and has full-color depictions including names of The State Capitol, Lake Laverne and Memorial Union Iowa State College, Floyd Monument Sioux City, Little Brown Church In The Vale Nashua, Grotto Of The Redemption West Bend, and the S.S. Queen Lake Okoboji.
The plate is 9 1/8 inches in diameter and 3/4 inch high. There are no scratches, cracks, chips, hairlines or other damage. The colors are bright, vivid and unfaded, the lettering is clear and there are lots of little details. This piece is in wonderful condition with a high-gloss glaze.
Please check my store for other souvenir plates, mugs, shot glasses, salt & peppers, glasses, postcards and other items from this great collection.
