    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

      I'd take that hanger off it. The springs pull the hooks down. Though they may be coated in rubber, pressure on cracked porcelain doesn't do well for the plate.

      It is not porcelian, Ironstone.But the suggestion is good.

      Well, in that case, for correctness' sake I will say this: 95% of what we call porcelain, isn't. True porcelain comes from a white clay found in a very small region of China. Hence why we often see 'vitreous china', 'semi-vitreous china', or just 'china' on the backs of white-clay items. Even in true porcelain are there differences, due to composition of the clay. The accepted types are: Hard/soft/bone china or porcelain.

      This is heavy and tan and with bumpy bottom.English I think from the mark Probably was pretty cheap in the day. I really like the graphics. thanks much for reply

      Photo # 3 is the movie version with Aidan Quinn I saw which makes the statement under the plate a bit unclear, because it is Friday who rescues Caruso in the film. (1980s)
      Afer Caruso spots Friday he chases him , firing his gun, and accidently falls into a pool ot quicksand--Friday stands a moment looking at him sink, then turns back, climbs a tree and with his weight leans a branch where Caruso can sttruggle up and reach it. Then he turns back away.
      So the movie has Friday Rescues Caruso--not like the plate's title," Caruso Rescues Friday".

      There were almost 30 Caruso movies from the silents on!!
