COMMENT: This Worcester Bicentennial Plate most certainly commands reverence and respect for history of manufacturer and the historical event. It deserves a great home as it has for many years in my Private Collection!

The variation of pricing  in the market place is determined by the No. Issue it holds in the edition. Lower numbers command higher prices. As a rule of thumb, this is true in terms of all special editions of collector plates. Of course, condition is always another determining factor in pricing. 

This would certainly befit of the United States to possess the first plate ever made to commemorate this event. However, from research, I do gather that the original is now housed in the Worcester Art Museum in Great Britain. This is also a very befitting place in which to house such a significant piece, after all it is the Worcester factories that first produced it and are preserving history.

NOTE OF INTEREST: INDEPENDENCE DAY The Declaration Of Independence was the formal statement or document written by Thomas Jefferson and adopted on July 4, 1776, by the Second Continental Congress, declaring the thirteen American colonies free and independent of Great Britain. In all, there were fifty-six signers.

Thomas Jefferson, 3rd.president of the United States, who first drew up The Declaration of Independence, co-signed it with John Hancock, the president of the Continental Congress who was the first signer. John Adams, 2nd. President of the United States was the third signer. 

The plate has very pleasing hand painted colors of celadon green, rust or coral and yellow enamel with rich accents of honey gold trim throughout which certainly gives prominence to such a powerful and gracious bird as an emblem for the American States.

As not to be misleading, I repeat, this is not the original plate. It is rather an exact copy of the original one produced in limited edition.

CONDITION:  Excellent! There are no damages, no rubbing of the gold and no restoration. The only thing is that the original box and certificate are missing. However, that should not be a deterrent considering all pertinent information pertaining to it, is written on back of the plate. This plate is certainly worthy of courting its brothers and sisters in a private collection of Americana.

PRICE: $125.00
