Note: Restaurant ware, or most commonly hotel ware is vitrified, ceramic tableware which exhibits high mechanical strength and is produced for use in hotels and restaurants. Tableware used in railway dining cars, passenger ships and airlines are also included in this category. Since restaurant ware is subject to heavy use, it is made to resist chipping and cracking
