1950’s Empire Dish


This item is now sold but please take a look around our website, we have many more great vintage items for sale.

A really cute little dish/side plate manufactured at Empire Potteries in the 50’s (the back stamp shows 4 55 which we believe refers to the date of manufacture). The hand painted cross hatch type pattern was very popular and variations were made by a number of companies, this one is particularly nice in the vivid yellow. You could use this in your kitchen but we reckon it will look best on a shelf or counter to hold small small items or just to display.

This has a small amount of crazing back and front, both areas are shown in the photos. The front is a close up and shows all the visible crazing, the rest of the plate looks fine. Other than this there is minor utensil wear but no chips or cracks.
