Item Description

These plates, measuring 10", picture the many landmarks of Hawaii such as Iolani Palace, Diamond Head, Onomea Arch, etc. They were produced by Vernon Kilns in the 1940s/1950s as part of a souvenir plate collection.

"Vernon Kilns was an American ceramic company in Vernon, California and was one of the "Big Five" California potteries. In July 1931, Faye G. Bennison purchased the former Poxon China pottery renaming the company Vernon Kilns. The company closed its doors in 1958."~wikipedia.com

On the back is listed important dates in Hawaii's history. Very collectible!
