Set of Twelve (12) vintage Blue and White porcelain plates made by MORITZ ZDEKAUER in what is now the CZECH REPUBLIC to commemorate the Centennial of the great state of Texas. 

This rare set is truly fantastic and makes quite the statement. I think it may be the only entire set available for purchase… the other complete sets I’ve seen have been in museums. 

Circa 1936, each plate has the logo of the 1936 Texas Centennial "Texas Under Six Flags" at the top with the rim hand painted in 24 kt gold. The set includes plates depicting The First Capitol of Texas at Columbia, Capitol of Texas - Austin, The Alamo, Mission San Jose de Aguayo, General Sam Houston, Mission La Bahia at Goliad, Old Stone Fort at Nacogdoches, Texas Rangers, The Four Original Warships of the Texas Navy, Stephen Fuller Austin, Capture and Surrender of General Santa Anna After the Battle of San Jacinto, and Contemporary Scene of Modern Life in Texas, each with detailed description of the scene on the back( I have one pictured).

Sourcing the South is my favorite thing to do... finding pieces that have been treasured for years and hopefully will be treasured for years to come. Many are steeped in history and tradition and some are just pretty but all are thoughtfully curated by me so that I can bring you the very best of what I find💙

I acquired them at a lovely Texas estate where they have been cherished for many years. 

Each measures  9.5” in diameter and all are in near pristine condition.
