An 8-inch plate in the majolica pattern known as bamboo, made near Philadelphia by the American manufacturers Griffen, Smith & Company (known by their GSH trademark, incorporating the "H" initial of the partner who left the company). The plate is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, stains, crazing or repairs. The molding is crisp; the glazing is a little sloppy with some missed spots and two tiny dabs of pink from dipping the brush in the wrong paint pot. The plate dates from 1895 or earlier. There is a stamped number 54 on the underside visible only because it was not glazed over.
