Fab 1930s atomic Art Deco Salem China Platter, Tricorne shape, nautical Sailing Ships or Sailboats pattern: triangular platter with stylized boats in reddish orange, black and gray in the center, on jaunty waves under a couple twinkling red stars...platinum & orange rings at the verge complete this classic Art Moderne design!

The perfect complement to the matching Salem Streamline/Tricorne Dinnerware Sets we have listed here: http://www.etsy.com/listing/62853657/

or the extremely rare Creamer & lidded Sugar Bowl Set available here: http://www.etsy.com/listing/68618113/

Platter measures 11.5 inches [29cm] from corner to corner and the bottom reads “TRICORNE BY SALEM U.S. PATENT D 94245, in platinum ink.

:: Condition ::
In very good vintage condition: the expected overall crazing (crackling effect of the clear overglaze)
is moderate with a small spot of discoloration (can probably be removed with peroxide), otherwise no chips, cracks, restorations, etc. We have another platter with a faint hairline crack listed here:

:: Care & Handling ::
As with any china this fragile, and with metallic embellishment, this platter should not be used in microwaves, and we strongly recommend hand washing. Where there is surface crazing, avoid staining by restricting contact with acidic or deeply colored liquids & foods (strong coffee, beets, etc).

PLEASE NOTE: Vintage and antique dinnerware pieces were often decorated with glazes containing varying degrees of toxic chemicals, eg. lead or cadmium. If you have a concern, please research before purchasing. To minimize exposure to lead when using vintage dinnerware, please observe the following precautions: use infrequently; do not expose to high heat, including microwaves, ovens, and dishwashers; avoid contact with acidic foods & liquids, especially if cracked or crazed (slight crackling of the clear overglaze); do not use to store food or liquids; wash by hand soon after use and allow to air dry.

Mandarin Orange is the most well known of the Tricorne patterns, but Salem decorated with many different designs, and we're committed to collecting as many as possible to present to you here on Etsy!
