Souvenir Friday- Welborn Tomorrowland Plate

Last weekend I was selling at an Old West show in Fort Worth, Texas. Before the show I managed to get out to a couple of antique malls in the area. As I was walking the rows filled with booths of antiques, collectibles and just junk I glanced into a booth and saw the plate. The price marked was very cheap so I immediately grabbed the plate and took it to the check out counter. At check out the price was even lower as the dealer was having a 50% off sale. I was very happy as I have not found a Welborn plate in a couple of years. This is one of the earlier plates with the ASI mark and the full Eleanore Welborn Art Productions mark on the back. ASI stands for the company set up to sell souvenirs at Disneyland, American Souvenir Incorporated.

I love this era of souvenirs from Disneyland. You must have enough material to open a Disneyland souvenir museum. Thanks for sharing this, Patrick.

Nice! I still don't own any Welborn plates, but this Tomorrowland design would be an example I would want.

I live just outside of Dallas and although Disneyland stuff is rare, it does show up around here from time to time! (as shown by my small but growing collection) I wish I had known you were in Ft. Worth!
