1950's Housewife Lunch Plate with Diet Pill Advertisement

8.25" Diameter, not quite 1" Tall

Wow. Times sure have changed since 1959!

My father was a psychiatrist and a bit of a hoarder. I found this clipping in a bag of papers that he squirreled away in the garage. It's from an issue of Modern Medicine from 1959 and is an advertisement for prescription Methamphetamine, marketed as a dieting supplement. It must be working, because the model certainly seems slim and happy!

Give it as a gift for Mother's Day... if you dare!

Commercial plate, lunch size, with custom ceramic decal.
Color is a slate grey with a touch of blue.
Decal is fused to the plate and is permanent.

Microwave and dishwasher safe.

Part of my new Upcycled/Recycled series, I'm offering a few items with my designs on commercial ware.
