Dinner plate used at a banquet in honor of Gov. Woodrow Wilson of New Jersey by the Syracuse Chamber of Commerce, Syracuse, New York, April 8, 1912. White vitreous china with transfer design. Onondaga Pottery Company, Syracuse, New York. Transfer depicts "Le Gourmet" raising a glass in a toast. Inscription in gilt lettering on rim of plate, "Syracuse Chamber of Commerce/ BANQUET/ to the. HON. WOODROW WILSON/ April 8th, 1912/ "THE ONONDAGA."
Wilson was one of several candidates vying for the Democratic presidential nomination, and must have been courting the New York delegation. First example of this dinner plate we've encountered. Obviously used only once...perhaps by Wilson himself!
