Researching an early souvenir plate of the Stoddard House.
Small plate says, "Stoddard House, Built 1870, Silver City".
On the reverse it is embossed, "Made for Silver Slipper".
Wondered if anyone familiar with Silver City history knows the history of the Silver Slipper Saloon? Is it still there? When did it close, etc., etc..
I would date the plate in the early century but not sure. Similiar small black glaze plates are usually German manufacture and date from 1890 - 1920. Thanks! Burton Williams in Boise.
