Denslow that originally appeared as plates in The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, and has its edges embossed in gold. (light rubbing with some tiny loss). Clearly marked on the back of the plate is “For Sample Purposes Exclusively. Further Reproduction Of Sale Of This Design Is Prohibited.” Created by World Wide Line in fine porcelain, this sample was never put into production, thus this sample remains the unique copy of this item.
