J & G Meakin Vegetable Dish
Donated by Willa Jean Tresner Crump
When Orlando Hudson "Orley" Tresner (1892-1980) and Virginia Ruth Chesser (abt. 1916-2000) married on November 29, 1934, they received this covered vegetable dish as a wedding present. Orley was from the Round Mountain community near Elkins in Washington County; Virginia was from the neighboring community of Baldwin.
The dish was made for export to the American market by J & G Meakin, Hanley, England.
