This is a vintage Newport by Gorham “Town and Country” pattern china dinner plate. The plate is a tan or ivory color with a shells design. This 10 ¾ inch porcelain dish is marked on the back “Newport Town & Country Fine China Collection by Gorham, Oven and Microwave safe”. There is an oval paper label on the back that says “Fine China Japan”.
My research indicates that this hard-to-find pattern was produced from around 1982 to around 1989. I believe that this pattern has been discontinued? Gorham is a prominent high quality fine china manufacturer, and their dinnerware is highly collectible. This elegant dinnerware plate is in excellent vintage used condition, with no chips, cracks, or repairs.
