The offered “Antique Green” pattern china plate by Franciscan with green embossed band and gold line was owned by Elvis Presley. The pattern, manufactured in the USA, was produced from 1969 through 1976. The offered plate was discovered, along with a number of other pieces of the china set and other personal affects once belonging to Elvis Presley, in several moving company boxes at the home of Elvis' ex-girlfriend Linda Thompson. The boxes and all their contents were purchased from Ms. Thompson by Jimmy Velvet. This stunning example comes with a letter from Jimmy Velvet of the Elvis Presley Museum that states in part, “Elvis Presley dinner plate in Antique Green style Franciscan Ware by Masterpiece China Owned & used by Elvis in his Monovale Dr. home. Obtained directly from Linda Thompson, Elvis’ longtime girlfriend.” The letter from Velvet lists Monovale Dr. as the plate's original home, but Ms. Thompson never lived at that address, but did live at the Hillcrest home. The plate is most likely from that home. The lovely dinner plate measures 10 1/2 inches (26.67 cm) in diameter and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from Graceland Authenticated.



The plate exhibits no defects. Near Mint condition.
