Object Name Plate, Decorative
Object ID 1972.01.03.03
Collection O. Henry Museum Collection
Description Pale pink border that fades to white with gilded edge. Ornate design in low relief around perimeter within pale pink border. Depicts two cherubs sitting on a cloud; the cherub on the left is holding a bunch of purple grapes while the cherub on the right is leaning in and attempting the grab the bunch.
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.
