Mae W. Marsh was a huge movie star in the 1920’s—going from silent films to talkies. She made nearly 100 films in her lifetime, and her career spanned 50 years. Some of these movies include THE LESSER EVIL (1912), THE ESCAPE (1914) and even TIDES OF PASSION (1925).
Mae was a prolific actress, sometimes appearing in as many eight movies a year. She also became a very popular actress, and she was featured on this terrific plate by STAR PLAYERS PHOTO COMPANY.
STAR PLAYERS PHOTO COMPANY produced this fantastic plate in the 1920’s. This plate with Mae W. Marsh was part of a series by the company that featured other movie stars. This series had Charlie Chaplin, Anita Stewart, Francis X. Bushman, Marguerite Snow, Alice Brady, Maurice Costello, Lottie Pickford, Lillian Walker and other actor and actresses.
All of the plates in this set features a floral border, and a picture of the star in the center of the plate. They are also the same size—they are about the size of a dinner plate.
What a wonderful find for the film buff, and you can see this great plate in my Etsy shop here!
