Grandma Weaver’s Plate

This plate resided in my mother’s china cabinet. Always as a display item in the dining room. First on display in the mahogany secretary, then in the dining room hutch, and finally mounted on the wall with other special plates. The only thing I was ever told about it that it was her grandmother’s (Effie Clarissa Lee Weaver’s) plate. I do not ever remember it being used, it was for display only and for Mom to have a memory of her grandmother who was a large part of her life. The label on the back says it is MZ Austria. The company was famous for its hand-painted plates. Grandma Weaver was born in Southfield, Oakland County, Michigan on 3 August 1859 – 2 years before the beginning of the American Civil War, and died on 11 August, 1945 – 4 days before VJ Day and the end of World War II.
