SEVERAL AVAILABLE: This pretty mid-size plate was ordered by the Southern Pacific Railroad for use aboard dining cars. The pattern, "Prairie Mountain Wildflowers" is intricate, full color depictions of the flowers often could be seen from train car windows. Depicted on this plate are California Poppy, Baby Blue Eyes, Farewell to Spring and Ruby Lily. This beautiful design was so enjoyed by train passengers it was used from 1931 through the 1950s.

SIZE is approximately 7-1/4 inches across. Chefs appreciated these plates because they could be used flexibly for a sandwich or small salad, or cake or pie for dessert.

CONDITION is as close to mint as not-new china can be. We looked very hard, tilting the plate in bright light and had real difficulty finding any surface marks that were from use. The floral decoration is brilliantly colorful and the glaze is strong. There are NO cracks, chips or flakes, and NO repairs.

Our plate is correctly railroad marked on the underside: PRAIRIE-MOUNTAIN WILDFLOWERS / MADE FOR SOUTHERN PACIFIC LINES / BY / ONONDAGA POTTERY / SYRACUSE, N.Y. below the green Syracuse China manufacturer's marking. The date code on this plate 10-EE translates to production in October 1950.
