Union Steamship Company Plate
Maker: John Maddock & Sons Distributor: none I purchased this plate at the bottle club show in New Westminster, and I highly recommend it for anybody interested in British Columbia memorabilia. The gentleman I purchased it from said it came out of the ocean at Madeira Park, and the deteriorated condition supports this claim. It is with this plate that I learned that the salt water will deteriorate it, and to test for its presence, you simply taste the cracks in the porcelain. After I heard this advice, I soaked it in my kitchen sink for a month, until I couldn't taste the salt anymore.
