This small platter is a superb example of the Keystone pattern china used by the Pennsylvania Railroad from the mid-19-teens into the 1930s. It is in extremely nice condition, virtually pristine -- an incredible find because this pattern is plagued by glaze blurs and runs; pits, pops and dirt in the glaze; and stray pieces of pottery stuck under the glaze.
In addition to being free from manufacturing defects, it is bright white with strong red-brown decoration and a crisp top logo. When tilted in bright light, we had a very difficult time finding any utensil marks visible on its gleaming surface.
Size is approximately 5.5 inches by 9 inches, terrific for display.
In addition to the top mark, it is fully railway back stamped (see our pictures). The date code F-4 translates to April, 1925. Made by the Onondaga Pottery Company / Syracuse China for the Pennsylvania Railroad, the distributor was Wright, Tyndale and Van Roden, Inc. of Philadelphia, Pa.
