Ohio China Company Antique Floral Platter. White platter with floral and gold band design around the edge. Pretty light green daisy-type flowers and blue violets are connected by a ornate gold band with three gold floral medallions on white china. The platter is about 10 1/2 inches by 8 1/2 inches and stands 1 1/16 inches high. The floral motif is in good condition but the gold band does have some wear. The rim of the plate is slightly scalloped. The back of the plate has a green stamp and says Imperial China Semi Vitreous. This mark was used from about 1902 to 1912.
This plate does have some grazing and a couple of small age spots, but there are no cracks or chips. Very pretty and Victorian looking.
The Ohio China Company began operations in 1896 in East Palestine, Ohio. It was started by the Sebring brothers and was originally called the Ohio China Works until 1902 when it was sold. This company closed about 1912.
