Vintage. Retro 1960s Mid-Century Modern Serving Plate, featuring a reproduction of an inlaid Hopi Indian Hummingbird Kachina. Manufactured by Couroc of Monterey (CA) from approximately mid 1960's - 1970's.

The Kachina cult provides an outlet for Hopi artistic and dramatic expression in many ceremonial dances. The Indians believe that many years ago when the tribe was starving because of very poor crops, supernatural beings called Kachinas came to them bringing gifts of feed and other things which saved the lives of many. This is a reproduction of a Hummingbird Kachina, Hand inlaid by master craftsmen, using real woods and metal permanently fused into satin black phenolic, resistant to alcohol and boiling water.

Condition is EXCELLENT. No chips, cracks, nicks. Measures 10 3/8 in diameter by 1/2 in height. Great addition to your Couroc collection or a nice display piece for a credenza, bookshelf, or mantel.

Couroc (roc standing for "hard as rock") developed a proprietary formula of black phenolic resin to create durable and handsome trays and bowls, deeming it resistant to alcohol, boiling water and cigarette burns. These pieces were marketed as home bar décor.

Company slogan: Any tray can serve a drink. Only Couroc can start a conversation! Couroc closed its doors in 1998 shortly after celebrating their 50th anniversary.

Embossed "Couroc of Monterey CALIFORNIA". Still retains its original gold foil label.

Perfect to use as a small Serving Bowl for cocktails and appetizers, as a stunning décor piece on your 60s styled Bar Cart, as a console Tray in your entryway to corral keys, loose change and mail - or simply as a gorgeous display piece! Display stand not included.
