RALPH LAUREN MARTINI BEAR 8.25" Salad Dessert PLATE 1997 Porcelain Japan POLO

You are bidding on a vintage Ralph Lauren "Martini Bear" porcelain salad or dessert plate, measuring approximately 8.25" in diameter. This white porcelain plate features a gilt gold rim with a central design of Ralph Lauren's classic Martini Bear, dressed in a white dinner jacket with a glass raised in one paw. On the reverse, the plate is stamped with the Polo Ralph Lauren logo and dated 1997. This plate is also marked, "Made in Japan, Decorated in U.S.A." The Martini Bear pattern of Ralph Lauren china was discontinued shortly after its introduction, and examples such as this plate are difficult to find.
CONDITION: This Ralph Lauren "Martini Bear" 8 1/4" porcelain salad plate is in very good vintage condition. The plate has absolutely no chips, cracks or crazing. There is no wear to the Martini Bear design in the center of the plate. There is some light wear evident to the gilding on the upper-right rim of the plate. I have attached an image of this issue in the sixth image above. This plate measures approximately 8.25" in diameter. Please review the high resolution images above for greater detail, or message me with any questions.
