The Split Personality Transferware Plate

I had to show you all this plate!  You're looking at one plate, not two halves of plates.  This is an extremely rare, early 19C  two color transfer ware sample plate in a Willow pattern sourced by Marion Harris.  It's now housed at the Cooper Hewitt Design Museum.

  4. Huh...a plate with a split personality......if they'd make a whole set I bet
    it'd be a patriotic sell out. Imagine the possibilities..........
