Groote Beer Groote Beer

Dutch Heritage Ceramic Wall Plaque

by Heppner, Sheldon, design

This exclusive Delft blue-style wall plaque makes a great gift, specifically for immigration anniversaries, reunions and family gatherings. The Groote Beer, the Waterman and he Zuiderkruis are the three of the more well known Dutch immigrant ships. Built during the war on America's west coast (Portland, Oregon) all three belonged to the Victory class. These ships were built with a multi-purpose design in mind, for use after as well as during the war. Various Groote Beer passengers contributed their recollections to the book To All Our Children.

The Project I Remember welcomes the participation of Dutch immigrant families and others who crossed the Atlantic Ocean aboard the Groote Beer by adding diaries, recollections, and photographs to the immigration memory project.

The 6"x6" (15cmx15cm) plaques have protective cork feet for surface use and a hanger for display on walls. They are packaged and shipped in styrofoam-lined boxes. These plaques can be found throughout North America at thousands of Dutch immigrant homes. PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS PRODUCT IS NOT AVAILABLE CURRENTLY.
