This big china dinner plate with an eye-catching NYC top marking is from the New York Central Railroad. The pattern name is "Pacemaker." The railway ordered and used Pacemaker plates -- only plates, no other pieces -- aboard its Mercury name trains in the late 1940s until about 1950, according to "Dining on Rails" (Luckin).

SIZE: 10-1/8 inches diameter

CONDITION: This plate has only very light surface marks; you must tilt it in bright light to notice them. The glaze is strong with no runs. The NYC monogram is crisp and clear.

COLLECTOR NOTE: Pacemaker plates were never marked on the underside with any kind of railroad marking. Only a Syracuse China maker mark was used. They were ordered in only two colors, gray and a pastel green. There is a very scarce, 9-1/2 inch smaller size that we have only seen in green.

This would be an extremely nice addition to any railway dining car china collection.
