The first, from my MIL, has an incised Jewish Star design in the center which helps date it to the Old Yishuv, the New Yishuv beginning about 1900. It is about 16" in diameter. The entire rim is incised with repeated designs and the rim edge has this lovely wave pattern.This looks likes letters doesn't it?
You can see how important or beloved this platter was to someone...here's a repair on the rim.
This second platter is much smaller-about 8" in diameter...really a plate.
Here you can see a close up of the floral and leafy design...you can also see how worn that raised design is as well as the major repair done on this plate-it had once been totally in two pieces as the repair shows on the back as well.
Hope you enjoyed seeing my old copper/tin bronze platters. For more vintage treasures, head straight on over to Coloradolady...and why don't you join us?
