Grocery Store Collectors Plate From Kansas

Advertising Plate J.A. Lednicky Grocery Store Kansas

Sorry This Item Sold Was $28.00

We love advertising items and the history
behind them. This colorful plate was made
sometime after 1892, when the D.E. McNicol
Company was incorporated in East Liverpool Ohio.
Our best estimate is the 1920’s.
This 7 inch plate was a giveaway by the J.A. Lednicky
Stores, which were in Everest, Purcell and Huron,
Kansas, all of which is printed in gold at the bottom.
The central motif features a male pheasant in front
of a stand of birch trees; at the lower right there is a
signature:  “Daudin.” The embossed and scalloped
outer rim is encircled with peach lustre and there are
peach lustre designs along the inner rim. There is no
crazing and there are no cracks or chips. During the
application of the gilt printing at the bottom, a bit of
it was dripped to the left of the printing. The reverse
is marked with the D.E. McNicol, East Liverpool, O.,
mark and W17, probably a stock number.

As a historical footnote, Mr. John A. Lednicky was,
according to census information, born about 1862
in either Austria or Czechoslovakia.  In the 1900
census, he is listed as 38 years old and married. By
1940, he had disappeared from the census rolls.
