Nauvoo Temple Plate - Scovil Bakery
This is a beautiful replica of the original Nauvoo Temple Plate, commemorating the dedication of the Nauvoo Temple in May of 1846. The original plate was commissioned from the Twigg Potteries in Staffordshire by Lucius N. Scovil when he was on his mission in England in 1846.
In the center of the plate is a depiction of the original Nauvoo Temple. On the rim are the names of members of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles and several other Church leaders serving at the time Elder Scovil left for his mission to England. He commissioned 50 dozen plates in 1846, and only 14 are known to exist at this time. One is on display at the historic Scovil Bakery in Nauvoo, IL – another is on display at the Heber C. Kimball home in Nauvoo – and 12 are housed at the Church History Museum in SLC, UT.
It was always thought that there were only blue Temple plates that had come from England but recently a small box of red plates were discovered in a home in Liverpool England.
9” round souvenir plate – hand wash – it’s food safe, but we don’t recommend eating on this plate.

OUR COMMITMENT TO BE IN HARMONY WITH THE REVEALED NAME OF THE CHURCH:
President Russell M. Nelson of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints released the following statement regarding the name of the Church.
"The Lord has impressed upon my mind the importance of the name He has revealed for His Church, even The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We have work before us to bring ourselves in harmony with His will."
The Nauvoo Gallery has been working to put our website and our gallery store in Nauvoo, Illinois in harmony with this important revelation. It’s been customary for websites like ours to use terms like LDS Art, LDS Temple Art, LDS pictures or Mormon Art when describing our products for Google and other search engines. Our intention has been to help people find what has been termed as LDS products & LDS Gifts. It took many many months to build and add products to this website using those relevant and popular search terms - please bear with us as we still find each instance where we can better be in harmony with President Nelson’s message. Thank you for your patience and your kindness during this process
