A pair of late 1940's - 1950's era hand-painted salad plates by Vernonware (Vernon Kilns of California).

These salad plates are in the "Organdie" pattern. Designed by Gale Turnbull, who was hired by Vernon Kilns as their art director in 1935.

The salad plates measure 7 1/2" wide.

Condition: There are small, minor stacking chips on the backs of the plates (see photo #3). Otherwise, both plates are in very good vintage condition with no other issues on the front sides or plate rims.

Each plate is marked "Hand-Painted, Organdie, Vernonware, California USA" (Photo #3). Vernon Kilns was later acquired by Metlox - California Potteries.

The price is for the set of two (2) plates, and I have one set available.

Please review listing photo details and let me know if you have any questions.

-----------------------------------------------------------------

Founded in 1931, Vernon Kilns was one of the "Big 5" California-based potteries (the others were Gladding, McBean & Co., Pacific Clay Products, J.A. Bauer Potteries and the Metlox Manufacturing Company).

Metlox later purchased Vernon Kilns.

I mostly use US Post Office (USPS) Priority Mail, which will include delivery confirmation and insurance. For larger, bulkier items, I will use USPS Parcel Post, FedEx Ground (Home Delivery) or UPS -- United Parcel Service ground service.

Post Office Parcel Post, FedEx and UPS Ground can take a week or more for shipments to the East Coast. If time is an issue, please convo me and I will research the best and most economical way to ship your items.

Your orders are shipped from Central California. If you live in the West Coast, your items may ship for less, so do contact me and we can check if a reduced shipping cost is possible, before your purchase --- or if I can provide a better rate by combining items to ship to you. Sales tax is charged for addresses shipping only within California.

*** Please note the shipping prices are for the Continental USA only --- if you live in Alaska or Hawaii, or sending a gift to someone in Alaska or Hawaii, there will most likely be additional shipping costs.
