Porcelain Dessert Plate Commemorating the 10th Anniversary of the "Reunification" of Ukraine (Soviet annexation of eastern Poland in 1939), by the Korosten Porcelain Factory, 1949.

Measures approx. 8" (20.5cm). The artwork is in characteristic style of the period; it consists of ears of wheat, oak leaves and (shamelessly) an olive branch with the requisite hammer and sickle. The Ukrainian inscription reads "X Anniversary of the Reunification of the Ukrainian Nation". It refers of course to the Soviet invasion of Poland in September 1939 which had followed the secret pact between Berlin and Moscow, under the pretense of "protecting" the fellow Ukrainians. Since the attack came after the Poles had already experienced full effects of the Nazi Blit

Measures approx. 8" (20.5cm). The artwork is in characteristic style of the period; it consists of ears of wheat, oak leaves and (shamelessly) an olive branch with the requisite hammer and sickle. The Ukrainian inscription reads "X Anniversary of the Reunification of the Ukrainian Nation". It refers of course to the Soviet invasion of Poland in September 1939 which had followed the secret pact between Berlin and Moscow, under the pretense of "protecting" the fellow Ukrainians. Since the attack came after the Poles had already experienced full effects of the Nazi Blitzkrieg in the west, the campaign was an easy one for the Red Army. The newly acquired territories were soon incorporated into Soviet Ukraine and to lesser extent, Soviet Belorussia.

The back shows the sun trademark of the Korosten Factory of 1946-49 period /Trademark is #380 in Volume One of Marks on Soviet Porcelain, Faience, and Majolica, 1917- 1991 /

In excellent overall condition. There are just a few light spots, no significant wear to the artwork and only very light wear to the outer decorative border. A very uncommon propaganda item.

Please note, pen in our photo is for size reference.
