Seller: elvistrace (2,045) 100%, Location: Joplin, Missouri, Ships to: US, Item: 163787335111 Up for auction is an antique early 1900"s souvenir porcelain dish advertising "Radium Water" Claremore, Ok. It is marked Wheelock, Made in Germany for M.B. Church, Claremore Okla. on the bottom and measures approximately 7 3/8" long x 4" wide x 1 1/2" tall. It is in nice condition for it's age but does have wear to the gold trim and one small chip on the front rim. It could use a light cleaning but I am leaving that up to the winning bidder in case you have a favorite cleaning agent. Awesome image of an Indian in a canoe in the center. Far from mint but more than acceptable for a 100+ year old porcelain item. Below is 2 interesting facts regarding the dish; *In 1903 George Eaton, the owner of the first oil company in Claremore was drilling for oil and discovered water that smells like rotten eggs. Eaton took the foul water and threw it into a nearby stream where a dog with mange jumped into the water and was cured within days. Eaton had the water tested and it proved to have healing abilities. Soon several hotels with "Radium" bath houses started up in Claremore and afflicted people arrived by the thousands and Claremore's "Radium Town" was born. In 1913 the Radium well was closed. *Mrs. M.B. Church owned a Millinery ladies speciality store in Claremore, Oklahoma which she opened in 1900 and closed in 1915. she then moved to Ardmore, Oklahoma where she became employed by the U.S. government to concentrate on Warwick and to teach people how to save waste and win the war. Both of these facts help date this souvenir dish to 1900-1913. Please look at pictures closely for details and condition. Really neat piece of Oklahoma history! Shipping is $9.00 within the United States. U.S. SALES ONLY unless you qualify for the Global Shipping Program. It will be packed and shipped securely with a tracking number. Thanks for looking and good luck! Maker: Wheelock
