This is a lovely hand painted Lefton decorative plate. The duck looks like it is lifting off the water. Probably a mallard, it has a green head, white neck band and reddish colored body. The water is a nice, bright blue and there are marsh grasses in the background. The plate measures 8" across. There are three holes in the foot rim for a cord to hang the plate.
The back of the plate is marked with the turquoise crown and writing in tan: Lefton China / Hand Painted. This mark was used from 1946 to 1950. It also has the original Lefton sticker still intact.
The plate is in excellent condition. There are no chips, flea-bites, cracks, crazing or repairs.
