Looking through an old Princeton Commencement program from 1930 we stumbled across an ad for Wedgwood Princeton Plates. The Ad is for “Staffordshire Blue Princeton Plates made by Wedgwood,” and they adversite that each plate bears a different Princeton View.
Sold by subscription only in complete sets of one dozen. The proceeds from the sale of the plates was used to publish The Princeton War Record. The plates were $15.00 for the dozen.
There is a little mail in coupon you clip off and include a $5 deposit. The check was mailed to the Office of the Secretary at Princeton University indicating that these plates were endorsed by the university.
The border on these dinner plates ia a direct reproduction of that used on the 1830 series of armorial plates designed by T. Mayer of Stoke-upon-Trent.
We have a nice selection of Wedgwood plates from Ivy League schools at our website:
