This unusual bowl is a salad bowl from the Western Pacific Railroad, in the attractive "Feather River" pattern. It is just under 7 inches across, with a terrific scooping rim and rounded corners giving it a unique, almost wavy look.

The railroad's top logo graphic appears inside one corner, while dark red feathers travel around the outside rim. On the underside, this dish is correctly marked with the Shenango China INCA WARE mark, in green.

CONDITION is lovely, with NO cracks, chips, flakes or repairs. There are just the very fewest, very lightest surface marks from use. The glaze is bright, strong, shiny and uniform with no runs. The artwork is beautifully crisp and sharply detailed.

The WPRR first ordered Feather River pattern dinnerware in the late 1940s, for use aboard passenger dining cars. It is named in honor of the Feather River, one of the wonderful natural attractions along the railway's route. The Feather, with a main bed approximately 70 miles long, is the principal tributary of the Sacramento River, in the Sacramento Valley of Northern California.
