These plates are handmade which sets them apart from all our other plates.

Heritage plate 

Each character is manually embossed into a heavy gauge steel plate, etched and coated with rich black and white vitreous enamel. The plate is then oven-baked to make a high gloss and durable finish.

Each plate is handmade and slightly different from one another, just like they were originally made in 1932 which is what ultimately gives the plate it’s character.
