This is a striking big service plate from the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad. At a full 10-plus inches across, it's a fabulous display piece, with highly detailed artwork in shades of cobalt blue. It is often said that it resembles Flow Blue.

This pattern is named "Centenary." This ware was first ordered by the B&O for their 1927 hundredth year anniversary. The design was so popular that the railway continued to order and use it until 1978.

This individual plate dates from between the mid- to late-1930s and into the 1940s. It has the desirable "large shield" bottom marking, which at the bottom shows the Scammell's company as the manufacturer, in their better grade of ware called Lamberton. The "Design Patented" also helps date the plate.

CONDITION is lovely with only a very few light surface marks - you can't see any unless you tilt the plate in bright light. NO cracks, chips, flakes or repairs. The artwork is crisp, highly detailed and interesting. The center scene shows Harpers Ferry, West Virginia. Around the wide, flat rim is a historical revue of progress in locomotives, beginning with a B&O horse drawn car from the 1830s, ending with a "Diesel Electric '51' 1937".

This plate would look fantastic standing in a display cabinet behind smaller pieces.
