A: Sabin Industries, Inc. made your oval platter. The company was established in McKeesport, Pa., in 1946. They purchased blank pieces of china from other companies and used their own artists to decorate them, usually with transfer print designs. They often decorated their wares with French inspired scenes of couples wearing formal attire in garden settings. The mark on your platter shows the decoration is 22-karat gold. Sabin produced “Crest-0-Gold” series, and a variety of other tableware, ovenware, kitchenware and decorative pieces. In 1967 Chase Enterprises purchased Sabin along with Mount Clemens Pottery and McCoy Pottery. Your platter was made about 1950 and would probably be worth $20 to $30.
