An archivist with Procter & Gamble was kind enough to identify this plate with its iconic P&G moon and stars logo as having been using in a company cafeteria. I had wondered at first if it could have possibly been a giveaway from the company that is so well known for its soap and is now a huge multinational.
It was made by Shenango China somewhere between the 1930s and 1948 and has that handsome colored Indian decal on the back.
The plate is just 6 ¼” in diameter and is in excellent condition but does have medium-to-heavy use marks. But so cool that it has the P&G “satanic” logo that thankfully was debunked, even though the company felt forced to quit using it during the Eighties.
