Johnny and I met up to go through some things in his basement… and he gave me some treasures!
I was very excited to receive these two plates…
After minimal internet search, I found them to be Fred Roberts grill plates from the 1940’s or 1950’s. I initially thought them to be children’s plates, but they are more along the lines of “keeping your beans from soaking into your dinner roll” plates!
How cool are these?
Then there’s the little family history attached to the back.
Great Aunt Wyoma Pyle was known for labeling her items with fingernail polish. So when I turned this over to look for a maker’s mark, all I could do was laugh. She’s been gone for many years, but her fiery spirit lives on!
Now, do I hang these on my kitchen wall, or do I use them? I can see eight grandkids fighting over who gets to use the cowboy plates!
