The First in a Series Issued January 1. 1973, this was a Bicentennial Commemorative Project Of The General Federation of Women's Club. These plates were designed and produced by the Fenton Art Glass Company of Williamstown West Virginia. This plate measures about 8 1/2" and comes in the original box, and leaflet. The box cover reads In Congress July 4, 1776 and has a picture of the Declartion of the United States under the American Flag. The plate is done in Antique Powder Blue and has a picture of the Forefathers gathered together, and on the plate at the top is written 1776-1976, at the bottom Give Me Liberty Or Give Me Death. On the back of this plate is more writing about the plate and Fenton. It is in perfect condition, no chips or cracks. This is a nice plate for the collector of plates or someone interested in History.
