A beautiful tribute to Iowa, this Vernon Kilns USA Collector Plate artfully details many of the iconic monuments scattered about the state. The plate, just over 10" is entitled "Song of Iowa" and features the following poem on the back:
"See yonder fields of tasseled corn, Iowa, in Iowa. Where plenty fills her golden horn, Iowa, in Iowa. See how her wondrous prairies shine; To yonder sunset's purpling line, O happy land, O land of mine, Iowa, O Iowa!"
Decorated in a brown transferware pattern, the plate highlights a dozen locations including: the State Capitol in Des Moines; the Music Pavilion in Iowa City; The Government Bridge in Davenport; and the Lewis & Clark Monument in Council Bluffs among others.
A great vintage collectible for a great state this piece is in excellent vintage shape.
