SEVERAL AVAILABLE: We "never" see Prairie Mountain Wildflowers dinner plates in such a wonderful condition as this -- PRISTINE, appearing unused. From the Southern Pacific Railroad, this popular pattern graced dining car tables from 1931 through the 1950s, and most of the plates suffered heavy use before they were discarded.

This is a full size, large dinner plate, 9-1/2 inches across. Made by Syracuse China it carries their correct bottom marking for Econo-Rim ware, the compact style developed in the 1930s specifically for cramped over-the-rails dining.
Importantly, there is a railway marking; PRAIRIE MOUNTAIN WILDFLOWERS / MADE FOR SOUTHERN PACIFIC LINES / BY ONONDAGA :POTTERY / SYRACUSE, N.Y.

CONDITION is superb -- if this plate was ever used, it was only a very few times. We had difficulty finding any surface utensil marks at all, even tilting it in bright light. (There may be a few -- this is not a "mint in box" piece.)

With the floral decoration representing blooms they could see from train windows, the traveling public was enchanted by this attractive dinnerware aboard on SPRR trains that ran through numerous southwestern U. S. states: Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Illinois, Kansas, Louisiana, Missouri, Nevada, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Oregon, Tennessee, Texas and Utah.
