This blue & white folk art serving platter is the Provincial pattern by Sheffield. The Provincial pattern holds a blue folk art tulip design centered on the white plates/bowls. A wonderful folk art flower pattern and scrolls that form hearts also decorate each piece in the same blue color.
This platter measures 13 1/2" x 10 3/4" (34.3 cm x 27.3 cm)
The backstamp on the back of the plates reads, "Sheffield <fleur de lis> ™" "Provincial" "Made in USA" - all is in blue.
This platter is very good condition. There are no cracks, chips or signs of crazing. However, the design has faded some at the bottom of the piece.
These belonged to my grand-aunt and were her "everyday" dishes. For someone who lived alone & rarely, if ever entertained, there are a lot of pieces to this set. This leads me to believe that they were originally my great-grandmothers. We do have other pieces to this set that will be listed soon. If you are looking for a particular piece (or pieces) to the Provincial pattern by Sheffield, please contact me and I'll see if I have what you may need.
Very simple in style, yet quite decorative it's a wonderful piece for everyday use or casual dinner party with friends.
