This is a wonderful platter by O.P.C.O. Syracuse China in the Howard pattern of black and green stripes on a white body. The platter is in perfect condition and is clearly back stamped by the manufacturer. The back stamp indicates this plate dates to 1928. The platter measures 9 x 13.5 inches and is in near mint condition without any utensil marks.
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
