    These plates were in a box of many other items left to my best friend Wanda, by her Great-Uncle. Wanda cared for Great-Uncle and Great-Aunt for their final years. They had no children and Wanda always drove Uncle to see his wife in a nursing home. He told Wanda that he had left her some treasures and they have sat in boxes until I started taking pictures of them.

    Our friendship began in 1959 and our families were best friends also.
    We recently lost Wanda's Mom and I am determined to finally look at it at least. She has paid storage on items for over 5 years and as her best friend, of 52 years, I just want her to know at least WHAT these items are.

    I am hoping that someone in the community can comment on where they come from and what the markings are on some of them.

      I am not having much luck in trying to figure out what all these items are.
      Some history on where they came from. I've posted somewhere else but no comments at all. Others want to charge you to tell you ANYTHING. So I joined because I feel I can look at other items also and share what I have found out in my research.

      At least I do see the name but I would like to have some history.

      I am stumped on something and if anybody has any ideas I'd appreciate it.
      The stamp that is on these plates are different from it's in what looks a sideway apple, but the same Crest o Gold and Sabin on it.

      I found these plates on Replacements Inc. Go to their site and where it says search put in "Sabin" and you will find them. Just so you know I have the same pattern on dishes that were my mothers. The pattern is called chantilly. My dishes do not have as much 22kt gold on them.

      Sabin Porcelain Victorian Couple CREST O GOLD Gilt Dessert Cake Plate MEASURE 6 AND 1/4" ACROSS. It is hand painted by Sabin, trimmed in 22k Gold

      Made BY Sabin Industries / USA / Circa: 1947-1960

      A Your plate was made by Sabin Industries, a decorating company in business from 1946 to 1979. The company was founded by Samuel Sabin in McKeesport, Pa. In the mid-1960s, David T. Chase and Chase Enterprises bought the company, but it continued to operate as Sabin Industries. Sabin used several variations of a mark picturing an artist's palette with the company name or the initial "S" in the center. The company decorated blanks made by other potteries. Your plate was made by W.S. George Pottery Co. of East Palestine, Ohio, and was decorated by Sabin. Dishes decorated with decals of Colonial people were made in the 1950s by many companies. Plates like yours retail for about $15.
