Object Name Plate, Decorative
Object ID 1972.01.03.02
Collection O. Henry Museum Collection
Description Pale yellow border that fades to white with gilded edges. Ornate design in low relief around perimeter within pale yellow border. Depicts two cherubs sitting on a cloud and making rose garlands from roses scattered on cloud surface. The cherub on the right is holding a rose in its right hand and a garland in its left hand.
Provenance An early accession record states that the decorative plates (1972.01.03.01-1972.01.03.05) belonged to O. Henry, but there is no other documentation available to substantiate that claim. The cup and saucer were donated by his niece, Ethel Hofer, so the provenance may very well be valid.
