Product description

Plymouth Mutual Co-operative & Industrial Society Jubilee (1910) - antique commemorative plate by CWS Longton
 
An original early 20th century antique commemorative ornamental ceramic plate, produced at the Co-operative Wholesale Society's Longton factory to mark the Jubilee (1860-1910) of the Plymouth (Devon, England) Mutual Co-operative and Industrial Society Ltd. The plate, which is moulded with fancy edges and a raised border pattern, and decorated in off-white glaze with a large sepia transfer depiction of the "Central Premises & Offices, Frankfort St.", Art Nouveau-inspired colour transfer floral motifs and gilt rim, bears a green printed C. W. S. Longton "Labor and Wait" wheatsheaf stamp to the base; a hanging cord is attached to a pair of holes in the foot (which are clearly original and intended for that purpose).
 
Whilst the plate shows various signs of age (see condition description below), it remains nicely displayable, and would make a lovely addition to a collection of commemorative ware, Co-operative memorabilia or Plymouth / Devon-related items.
