21207g. [commemorative plate] “U. S. Lighthouse, Newport, Oregon.”

21207g. [commemorative plate] An exceptionally rare, bright, gilt decorated and edged commemorative plate featuring a beautiful clear, detailed color image of the “U. S. Lighthouse, Newport, Oregon.” c. 1900. One of only a few of this light that I have had, this fairly large plate has a large 3 ½” full color image of the tall masonry light tower beside the 2-story keeper’s dwelling, barn and out-buildings. This detailed image shows the light tower and buildings the ocean in the background. This pretty display piece measures 7 ½” in diameter and is enhanced by a decorative gilded and rose decorated edge. Nice bright, detailed image reminds one of a painting. Marked “Wheelock Made in Vienna Austria for A. L. Thomas, Newport , Ore.”. Quite clean, bright, little if any wear, a beautiful display piece. (F-). $88 net.
