Retro novelty plates

Retro novelty platesRetro novelty plates
made in England [?] c. 1960s

Corny or what?

CONGRATULATIONS i’m so HOPPY for you!
drop me a Lion will you?
HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you…happy birthday…[this sung by a crow-postman]
DON’T CROAK get well QUICK

Well, OK, that last one is a little suspect. Not so much corny as bordering on tactless.

Following on from a recent post featuring comic lawn bowlers [see below] – another subject ripe for hilarity, these novelty plates appeal to me in the same manner. The screwball graphics and expressions – sort of sums up the swinging 60s! I can’t image them being made today.

The plates are unmarked, but I think they are English in origin- the person from whom I purchased them believed so. If anybody knows anything more about these novelty plates, I’d love to hear from you.

Golf novelty plates

Westminster China, Australia 1950s

I love the 50s comic transfer print on these plates: pretty much sums up my approach to golf. Which is: picnic on the greens, the 19th hole is an actual hole and hit the ball the wrong way. I also love the tricircular shape of the plates with their gilt edge.

Golf tragics will love these plates – as will the amateur golfers amongst us. They are marked Fine China, Westminster China Australia and impressed with the number 693.
