Vintage Plate by Hudson Fine Pewter

The item I am sharing today was made in Massachusetts, in 1979 by Hudson Fine Pewter. The plate is 5 3/4 inches in diameter, and was published in a Limited Edition.

Depicted on the plate is a manger scene with angels and sheep around the Baby Jesus. It was sculpted by Albert C. Petitto. The detail is very fine.

The back of plate reads:
"While Jesus lay asleep in peace,
radiant with love,
God sent his littlest angels
with candles from above
– RoseMary"

The border of the plate has a finely detailed design of poinsettias, holly berries and leaves. In addition, four bows help to anchor the design.
