3375Re: plate with figurine
- Jun 30, 2003I have never seen a figure attached to a Vernon Kilns plate, but
drilled plates from 2- or 3-tiered tidbit servers are fairly common.
Anyone could have pieced together the components. Or a jobber may
have purchased plates to use for a specialty item.
Farberware "frames" are also found holding the 6.5" plate and
sometimes larger plates.
Vernon Kilns produced the Lei Lani design beginning in 1940, first on
the Ultra blank, then on the Melinda blank (1942, renamed Hawaii),
and finally on the San Marino blank (1947). The central flower is
the lotus blossom; it is surrounded by a variety of Hawaiian flowers
including one sometimes called Mexican creeper or chain-of-love.
There's a Vernon Kilns folder in the Photos section if you wish to
share a photo of the figurine and plate.
