Avon Wedgwood Christmas Plate - 1980  Eighth Edition
In 1973, Avon contracted with the famous Enoch Wedgwood (Tunstall) Ltd. England to produce a series of Christmas plates. The result was a series of eight plates, each unique, yet forming a lovely set. Originally, there was no 1975 plate. The 1976 plate read "Third Edition". Of course consumers and collectors found this totally unacceptable, and the 1975 plate was produced , reading "Fourth Edition" on the back and bearing a 1976 production date.

The plates are 8-3/4" in diameter. Each has a wide blue border, gold on the edge, and inner narrow band. The shade of blue varies from year to year, to add to the uniqueness of the plates. On the center area of each plate is a beautifully nostalgic scene, again, each different from the previous plates.

This plate is the 1980 - Eighth Edition Plate. It is entitled "Country Christmas".

On the back of each plate is inscribed: Christmas Plate Series, the specific Edition, the Design Title, the Year, the Wedgwood hallmark and name, and that it was made for Avon Products, Inc.

At the time of listing, we have the entire set of eight plates. They are listed individually, to enable customers to complete their collection, begin a new one, or perhaps purchase a plate that commemorates a special Christmas in their lives.

These plates are in very nice condition, having been displayed on a plate rack for a number of years, thus handled very little. We do not have the original boxes for them. If you would like to see additional photos of a plate, such as the reverse side, etc., please use the Contact tab on our Home page.

I try to describe the items on this site as accurately as possible. Because items we carry are vintage to antique, they are sold in "as is" condition. Please examine the photos, and contact us with any questions or additional information you might have. We want you to be happy with your purchase.
