This vintage Judy Miller Country and Western Bar Scene Dancing plate would make a great addition to a collection. Hand crafted in 1980.
The plate has the appeal that one expects from Judy Miller's early creations.
Great western cowboy theme. A couple stomps their feet on the floor, while another watches from the table, enjoying wine and beer. The bar tender watches over drinks at the bar. A cowboy performs at the mic, singing and strumming a guitar.
Through a door, a pool table corner is visible. Hunter green walls contrast nice with lighter green ones. Excellent design and composition.
The scene enchants with golden and silver accents: Stars and the moon are visible through the windows. Beer shimmers glistening gold. And the mirror behind the bar adds more intrigue.
The plate is signed and dated on the back.
Approximately 10 3/4 inches in diameter, collect this hard-to-find plate now before it's snatched up by another.
