#90 Come Let Us Adore Him Plate

Acquired 1994

From the Hamilton Collection, by Samuel J. Butcher's Precious Moments, “Come Let Us Adore Him” recounts the humble birth of Jesus in the little town of Bethlehem. In a peaceful tableau illuminated by the golden glow from the manger, Mary and Joseph kneel in love and adoration as a cloud-borne cherub heralds the blessed event. Portrayed in rich colors on a specially sized porcelain plate to capture the sensitivity and delicacy of the art, the plate is enhanced by a distinctive 4mm, 23K gold border. I ordered the premiere issue on January 24, 1994, $32.46. Certificate of Authenticity Plate Number is 2897N.
