This Chester Nicodemus plate measures 3/4" high by 4.5" in diameter. It has a rounded form, with ruffled tabs.  It bears the symbols for Delta Tau in relief. Chester Nicodemus was a potter from Ohio. He studied at the Cleveland School of Art and he was a student of Arthur Baggs during the early 1930s. He managed his pottery from the early 1940s until very late in his life. He died in 1990. This ferro-stone-glazed plate is glazed in Nicodemus' signature turquoise/blue glazes, with its clay color peeking through at the high points.  The natural red clay has a high iron content producing rich deep color. This plate is well marked on the underside with the impressed mark, and still bears its original foil paper label. This handsome sorority plate is in original studio condition, no apologies.
