Kentucky history plates are designed and produced by Jill Jayne Read as a tribute to the beauty and fascinating history of her native state.
The twelve dinnerware sized plates in the series will become heirlooms for future Kentuckians to treasure and pass down from generation to generation. Made in England of fine Chown bone china with the design in either blue or red, these plates may be purchased as a set, or one at a time. They are microwave friendly and dishwasher proof. Price per plate is $75.00, and plates may be purchased securely on-line, or by telephone order.
