Price is for two very large 13 inch Restaurant Ware China platters. They are Wallace China, the Desert Ware type of dishes. They are tan with two stripes of different color brown around the rim and under the rim. They are both in nearly mint condition.

NOTE: Restaurant ware, oftentimes called 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.
Wallace China started in Huntington Beach California in the 1930's. Desert Ware was a popular line of restaurant dinnerware during the 1930's & 1940's. The company relocated to Vernon California and continued operations there until 1959 when Shenango acquired Wallace China.
