10 1/2" x 6 3/4". White palm leaves on green, wide (1.5") rim. Excellent used condition except for numerous small utensil scratches (only visible closeup). The "6-x" mark on the reverse is a date stamp indicating that the platter was fired in 1950.Estimated replacement value $150.00. Wallace also issued a similar pattern with a narrow (1/2") rim called Shadowleaf. TEPCO issued similar patterns resulting in a court battle over copyrights. I believe that these green leaf style pieces were specifically made for the Hawaiian Restaurant and Hotel Market. Not many of these around. Historical Data --The Wallace China Company operated in Vernon California from 1931- 1964 when they were bought out by the Shenango China Company. (J3-002)(0813)
