Bovano Cheshire CT Mid century enamel

Bovano Cheshire CT Mid century enamel
Bovano 15 inch diameter Orange Sunburst charger

Produced by the Cheshire CT firm of Bovano (started in 1953 by John BOnsignor, Gene VAn Leight and Warren NOden), this 15 inch wide square enamel charger features what I have named the Sunburst pattern which consists of alternating rays of 4 colors coming out of a asymmetrically placed focal area of small enamel jewels in the same 4 colors. The back is done in the typical black counterenamel Bovano uses and the gold circle label which reads Handcrafted by Bovano of Cheshire Conn. The 3 original black felt pads are there.
