The plate features images of famous Canadian venues:
ROYAL CANADIAN MOUNTED POLICE
Note the maple leaves in the front and the maple tree on the right.
There are 12 sides – is that significant to Canada?
On the back, the mark is a knight's head with armor. It looks like the center is 3C with a script M underneath between two stars and a giant V.
I really love the whole look of this plate! I bought this in Canada in the late 1980s early 1990s on a road trip with my Mom to the Thousand Islands, Upper Canada Village and more. It was old when I bought it in an antique store – but not really an antique. It is probably from the 1950s judging from the style.
It is marked HAND PAINTED on the back. The back "flaws" are original, made when the plate was fired.
It measures 6-1/4 inches in diameter and the gold washed handle is about 1/2 inch high.
