This is a hard to find little dish in the Purple Laurel pattern from the Pennsylvania Railroad. With its tab handle but only 4 inches across, it resembles a miniature ice cream shell. It was made by the Scammell China Company, in their higher grade Lamberton ware.
On the underside is the full railway bottom marking: the PRR in a keystone logo, together with supplier John Wanamaker's name.
CONDITION is lovely, with only the lightest signs of use. You must tilt it in bright light to see any in the bowl. There are NO cracks, chips, flakes or repairs. The pattern is bright, clear and free of the glaze runs and smears that often plague this pattern.
A great find, missing from most Pennsy dining car china collections.
