Art collector to show off Joan Rivers' Seder plate at Passover

A Judaic art collector based in Nassau County says he can't wait to show off a Seder plate and matzah covering that once belonged to actress and comedian Joan Rivers.



Jonathan Greenstein, owner of J. Greenstein and Co., says he bought the gold-trimmed plate for a bargain at $600.



He originally planned to re-sell the plate at an auction for at least $5,000, but had a change of heart.



Greenstein, who has an office in Gravesend, says he can't wait to show it off for Passover.



Rivers was born in Brooklyn and died in 2014 following complications from throat surgery.
