Vintage Large 12” Blue Willow Round Plate
A beautiful and large Blue Willow 12” round plate by Royal China Company. This is American blue willow at its best as the Royal Company started producing it in 1948 and soon became the world's largest manufacturer of blue willow!
Fun fact: the original founders were Beatrice Miller, William H. Habenstreit and John Bert Briggs. Miss Miller went to the bank with the proposal to purchase the building, but was turned away, as a woman in manufacturing was practically unheard of at that time. Mr. Habenstreit went to the same bank with the same proposal and had a warm reception. HA!
This is a platter that's been loved and enjoyed! There is browning around the rim and a couple of chips under rim but to me, an antique lover, these signs of aging are incredibly amazing and just add to the beauty of this piece.
Made in the US (Sebring, Ohio to be exact) sometime after 1948
This is still great for serving your scrumptious good but will also look amazing on your wall
All orders ship within 3-5 business days after the order and payment is received but slight delays may occur during high season and holidays.
All orders ship out of our San Diego, CA warehouse and those in the IS will arrive within 2-9 days, depending on the shipping method selected.
We use USPS and UPS as our preferred shipping carriers as we're able to use discounted commercial shipping rates. At the time of shipping, we will select the most cost efficient and expeditious option for your order (USPS Priority/UPS Ground or 3 Day Select) - the less a package is in transit, the better chances of a safe arrival are.
Our website is integrated with USPS and UPS which means that shipping costs are automatically calculated during checkout based on your shipping address and size and weight of the box. That said, calculations are not always precise, particularly for multi product orders. If final shipping costs end up being less than what you paid, we will refund you the difference and if it ends up being more, we will bear that cost.
We do not charge any mark ups, handling fees or shipping insurance costs to our customers. We provide complimentary shipping insurance on all orders to protect you against damage that may occur during transit. We have safely shipped hundreds of fragile orders and we expertly package the porcelain and glass orders so you can rest assured that your order will arrive to you safely.
