Object Name Plate, Decorative
Object ID 1972.01.03.01
Collection O. Henry Museum Collection
Description Pale blue border that fades to white and gilded edge. Ornate design in low relief around perimeter within pale blue border. Depicts two cherubs sitting on a cloud and the cherub on the left looking avidly at grapes that one on the right is holding. There is a cluster of grapes in between the cherubs. The cherub on the left has a coral cloth draped underneath it and the cherub on the right has a blue cloth draped underneath it.
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.
