Republic: White porcelain 4' square pin dish with molded
design of four
flowers on opposite corners and a single four-petaled blossom on the
remaining corners with edge of dish and blossoms outlined in gold and

yellow; colored illustration identified as Bird's Eye View of Republic, Mich.
The lake is Mirror Lake, later renamed School Lake.
The view is taken from Park City,
