7 1/2 Diameter See back of plate for maker. This was sold for $1.91 at Goodwill because of damage. But I was happy to have it for the picture, and I have it hanging up in my kitchen where I smile at it every day.
The damage is the crack lines.. The plate is sturdy tho and still has a cute look to it. How many kids have had a piece of cake off this?.
Would it now be considered a racist item??
Daniel Defoe published Robinson Crusoe on April 25, 1719.
. An interesting fact is that the original title was 374 characters long:
" The Life and Strange Surprizing Adventures of Robinson Crusoe, Of York, Mariner: Who lived Eight and Twenty Years, all alone in an un-inhabited Island on the Coast of America, near the Mouth of the Great River of Oroonoque; Having been cast on Shore by Shipwreck, wherein all the Men perished but himself. With An Account how he was at last as strangely deliver'd by Pyrates."
No mention in that long title of Friday. I think Caruso was awhile alone on the Island before Friday's tribe excommunicated him and left him on the Island
