Pretty in Pink! This smaller china plate is from the Gulf, Mobile & Ohio Railroad. The pattern name is Rose. It is in extremely nice, very lightly used condition with a great top GM&O winged logo and wonderful, uniform strong pastel color.
At approximately 6.25 inches in diameter, this is a bread-and-butter plate, that would have been placed above the dinner plate. Clever waiters also would have used this size for snacks -- cookies or similar.
This plate is correctly bottom marked by its maker, Syracuse China, in their Econo-Rim space-saving shape. The date code 8Z translates to August 1945.
CONDITION: Absolutely NO cracks, chips, flakes or repairs!
A hard to find item that would be a star in any good railway dining car collection!
