Vintage Collectible Bessie Pease Gutmann Plate$6(Novato, CA)
This is a collectible, vintage, 1985, Hamilton Collection Plate, from the series “A Child’s Best Friend”, by Bessie Pease Gutmann. “The Reward” is plate #2 in this series, and the plate is #4666P, as well as signed by the artist. The plate is vibrant in colors, and features a small child offering her pet dog a lick of ice-cream or a “treat”. The plate itself is surrounded by two circular bands; ie., one is green while the second forms a 23-karat gold border. The measurements of this plate: 8 1/2” in diameter. I acquired this piece as part of of an estate sale that I have been charged with liquidating. It is in excellent condition with no chips nor cracks. A plate easel is included for ease of display. It would be the perfect decoration for a child’s room.
