Very, very rare: this beautiful porcelain on metal license plate!
Porcelain plates were used in the USA from 1905 to 1917 and were succeeded by die-cut metal plates.
These stem from the early years of the automobile era. Not many people
had a car back then. Mass industry had yet to commence. Just like World War 1. Cars looked more like carriages with an engine.
A protective layer was added to the back of the porcelain for the one could leave their address, see photo.
Pennsylvania was, just like the other 4 North-Eastern states, a forerunner when it came to license plates and of course the automotive industry as a whole.
Please place a worthy bid on this beautiful plate.
