My grandparents received this plate on their 50th wedding anniversary in 1950. It's amazing what you can learn by researching a plate! The "Colonial Couple" pattern is a commercial decal that many companies put on their products, including lamps, dinnerware, and art pottery. W.S. George Pottery CO was one such company. Lido is the shape name and Canarytone is the ivory glaze. I'm not sure why Dorlexa China CO is also stamped on the back. Perhaps this company hand-painted the gold? I'm depending on you, Mark, and others to add their expertise. Thanks.
