Historic Pecan Plate #225
This unusual pecan polished wood plate with turquoise inlay is beautiful in its simplicity. It measures a generous 9” in diameter and was sourced from the Mount Vernon Pecan Tree circa 1850. The stately pecan appears prominently in virtually all exterior graphic and photographic images of Mount Vernon for more than a century. The tree stood next to the Mansion with branches soaring to 145 feet and posed a direct threat to the Mansion and the priceless objects contained therein. The approximately 50-ton tree was removed in January 2014 and the wood held in safekeeping on the Mount Vernon estate. This special plate is approximately 9” in diameter with three carved ridges on the interior and a shallow base on the reverse. This unique item is signed and numbered by the artist and accompanied by a certificate signed by the Regent of the Mount Vernon Ladies' Association.
