The dinner plate was one of my mother-in-law's. If I dated the back stamp right it is from 1938, the year the pattern was introduced. On the back it says "Wishing you a Merry Christmas". I have six of these plates but, they are not used. I display them in a plate rack or in the hutch. I will be joining Marty at a Stroll Thru Life for Tabletop Tuesday. Thanks for stopping by!
