Listed for your consideration today is a Liberty Blue large oval turkey platter with the Signing of the Declaration of Independence Scene. The original platter in this shape and size was made as a go-along piece and was not Staffordshire as all the other original pieces in this fine series were. The platter was made in Japan and was only available for a limited time. The platter listed today measures 18 1/4" long and just under 14" wide and I am not sure of the maker, T are no chips or cracks. no crazing and no evidence of use. The pattern is definitely the Liberty Blue Signing of the Declaration of Independence, but the size is different and the transfer is not quite as crisp as that of the other pieces. But if you collect Liberty Blue and have yet to find one of these platters, you will not be disappointed to add this piece to your collection. These are SCARCE and when placed beside your Liberty Blue set, you will be delighted. Because it is not an original piece, based on it's size and markings, I want to fully disclose everything so you can make an informed bidding decision.I have collected and looked for Liberty Blue for several years now and have only seen three of these. This is a large piece and will require bulky packaging. PLEASE REALIZE THAT SHIPPING COSTS LISTED ARE ESTIMATES. Any questions, please ask before bidding.
