Post World War II Green Gazed Earthenware Passover Seder Plate
Green glazed earthenware Passover Seder plate made by Jewish DPs in the Föhrenwald displaced persons camp. Decorated on the rim of the plate is a scene of slave laborers being forced to work by a master in the shadow of a pyramid and a group of buildings representing historic Jerusalem. The Hebrew text on one side of the decorative motif reads: "From Slavery to Freedom," and on the other: "This Year in Jerusalem". Inside another decorative motif are the Hebrew and English words "JOINT" and "Religious Office". Stamped on the back is the Hebrew term "Sheerit ha-Pletah" [Surviving Remnant] and the English, "Employment Board".
