This huge serving platter is 11" wide handle-to-handle. This is one of the most rarest pieces of either Russian Navy or Soviet Navy Dinnerware militaria to be had.

It is in absolute perfect museum quality condition and a prized piece of Cold War Soviet Naval Militaria. The Soviet Naval Officer who snagged this huge platter out of the Wardroom Officers Mess truly was a brave soul as back in 1957 it would have been the gulag for him if he would have been caught!

The rarity and uniqueness of Soviet or Russian Navy Dinnerware and Tableware in general and as marked cannot be overly stressed. The very nature of the post revolution Russian Navy and ex-Soviet Union's politcal and social structure was that everyone was considered to be of equal stature, including officer's and enlisted. However, reality has shown that even in the Soviet Union Peoples and Peasants Republic the Senior Officer's received special treatment, such as fine porcelain dinnerware!

This Russian naval serving platter and similar Russian or Soviet Navy dinnerware is a must for any serious WWII or Cold War Collector of Naval Militaria! Click Here For More Information on The Russian Navy and Soviet Red Fleet names and acronyms from Wikipeadia
