9177c. [commemorative plate] Tillamook Light House, Seaside, Oregon c.1900

9177c. [commemorative plate] An exceptionally rare, bright, gilt decorated and edged commemorative plate featuring a beautiful clear, detailed color image of the “Tillamook Light House, Seaside, Oregon.” c. 1900. One of only a few of this light that I have had, this fairly large plate has a large 3″ full color image on white of the square wooden light tower atop the dwelling constructed on the summit of Tillamook Rock. This detailed image shows the derrick swung out to pick up supplies from a surfboat near the base. This pretty display piece measures 7 ¼” in diameter and is enhanced by a decorative scalloped gilded decoration around the edge. Nice detailed image on the bright white china make a good contrast on this rare item. Marked “Made in Germany.” Quite clean, bright, a beautiful display piece. (F). $89.
