This is a set of 12 dinner plates which produced as a limited edition for B. Altman & Co. by the Adams China Co.. The production was limited to 750 sets and this is number 250. The plates were all popular winter scenes taken from engravings originally produced by Currier and Ives and have a holly berry and mistletoe border. The titles of the plates are; Maple Sugaring, Snowbound, Ice Boat Race on the Hudson, Clipper Ship Red Jacket, American Farm Scene, Winter in the Country, A Cold Morning, Winter pastime, The Snow Storm, A Home in the Wilderness, New England Winter and Ruffed Grouse in Winter. None of the plates have any chips or cracks. The Red Jacket plate has moderate glaze crazing front and back, the others show very little crazing. Together these weigh quite a bit so I feel they should be shipped in several boxes rather than one. It seems like when I ship something heavy someone always drops it on a floor and something breaks. I will require insurance to be purchased to protect you and myself. These plates come with an original advertisement and the set registration card from 1948. I don't usually have a buy it now price but I will for this auction. If the final price equals the buy it now price or these plates are purchased using buy it now I will pay all shipping costs
