Are you looking for a very special baby gift? Our collection of 4 antique tin alphabet plates will appeal to the most discriminating new parents - parents who appreciate history, simplicity and the value of family heirlooms.
We found these old tin plates at the estate auction of a local antique dealer. All are dated to the late 1800s and show the alphabet around the edge. One plate features Jumbo the elephant. Very special nursery decor.
Back in the day, an ABC plate was considered a coveted gift for a baby or young child. (It certainly beats the mountains of plastic toys children seem to accumulate today.)
