A doggie on a plate – it’s not what you think (or is it?)
A nice addition to Museum collections in this genre. Issued by a Henry Sherry of 564 First St., Hoboken, and whose type of business has not been determined. It is a typical item produced in the era presumably as a holiday gift to customers or clients.
Donor Beverly Matthews searched us out to find a home for this special item. Sometimes these items get swept up into the box to go to the charity thrift shop, but she took the time to contact us and inquire about our interest. We are gratified by her diligence and effort to send it on and let us share it with everyone. Take a closer look at it in the online catalog, enter keyword: 2015.005.0001
