Grandma Plank Plate

Grandma Plank’s Dinner Plate

Among the oldest heirlooms in my possession is this china plate. I presume it is from around 1870 or after, the marriage year of the grandma in question. The greenish cast is endemic to the plate, rather than a white balance issue. I used my Merax One Shot Photo Studio for the softbox. The images were taken with a Nikon D90 and Micro-Nikkor 60mm AF f/2.8.

Here’s a Pinterest-style detail, suitable for pinning.
