This adorable little egg cup is from the Great Northern Railroad. The pattern is their "Mountains and Flowers," which incorporated detailed color depictions of three different flowers that passengers were likely to see as they traveled along the railway lines through Glacier National Park.
Very fragile in a pedestal style, this piece is decorated with two: the pink Spring Beauty (delicate and dainty) and the yellow Globe Flower (which flourishes on the banks of Grinnell and Cracker lakes).
CONDITION is exquisite, with no signs of use or damage. There are NO cracks, chips, flakes or repairs. The colors are beautifully bright. This cup is wonderfully clean inside and out.
The only thing we can fault is that there is no railroad bottom marking, but that is often the case with such tiny pieces. There is absolutely no doubt that it is authentic, because of the decoration.
A great find, missing from most collections of northwestern U.S. railroad dining car items.
