Girl Scout Plates; Decorative & Utilitarian

Girl Scouts have always been helping out in the kitchen!  

Here's the home page for general use plates, decorative plates and silver/pewter plates, trays.

 

Early ceramic-type plates were not offered through the catalogs. These items were likely sold to councils directly from the producers.

Specialty plates such as cookie, Roundups, etc. are elsewhere.

By 1993, the last year these were offered, the price was $45.00!

Surprise!
