New York Central Railroad "Mercury" Straight Sided Cup and Saucer Set NYCRR
MORE THAN ONE AVAILABLE: This cup and saucer set is authentic from the New York Central Railroad. The cup is a straight-sided mug style, rather than the more commonly found round-sided ones. Both are correctly marked as having been made by Syracuse China.
The pattern name is Mercury, a deco "designing with type" using the NYC and a grid of vertical stripes.
CONDITION is very good with only a few light surface marks from use, that are not noticeable unless you tilt the piece in bright light. The saucer has expected but hard to see light use showing around the ring in the well where the cup sits. There may be a few tiny, pale spots here and there but only a few and hardly noticeable. NO cracks, chips, flakes or repairs.
The saucer carries the full New York Central bottom marking; the cup has the correct Syracuse marking but no reference to the railroad. This is acceptable.
COLLECTOR NOTE: ONLY Syracuse and Buffalo China made Mercury for the NYC. Beware of FAKES by other makers and pieces you can date to after 1968 (when the NYCRR went out).
