Item/Description: Vintage 1972 Holly Hobbie Collector’s Edition “Mother Is Another Name for Love” American Greetings Mother’s Day-themed plate.
The charming imagery depicted beneath the sweetly sentimental message “Mother Is Another Name for Love” is that of three (3) young children, two (2) little girls and a little boy brother and sisters. Each of the children is delightfully attired in the classic Holly Hobbie mode of dress - Pioneer/Prairie-style clothing. One arm of the older sister is holding the hand of her baby sister, while her other arm is affectionately wrapped around her younger brother as he lovingly clings to her. They are standing in a field of flowers, gazing off into the distance.
The pastel colors utilized are a scrumptiously vivid yet soothing and complementary array of seafoam green, bubble gum pink, daffodil yellow, cherry red, tangerine orange, rust brown, and milky white.
