SEVERAL AVAILABLE - From the Southern Pacific Railroad, we have these adorable side dishes -- sauce dish, monkey bowl, fruit bowl -- a small round bowl that would be placed to the right of a place setting on a dining table. The pattern name is "Prairie Mountain Wildflowers," a design made for the SPRR from 1931 through the 1950s.

The bottom marking is correct identification that the Onondaga Pottery made these dishes specifically for the railway. There is no date code but we would suggest that with so little wear, these probably date from the latter p;art of service. The deeply stamped rim edge design confirms this is Syracuse China's Econo-Rim ware.

Condition is lovely ! There are absolutely NO cracks, chips, flakes or repairs and only the lightest possible surface marks (you MUST tilt the piece in bright light to notice any). The flowers are realistically depicted in bright, cheerful colors. There is no aging discoloration.

Each dish is approximately 5 inches across, with three flowers depicted: the Mariposa Tulip, Baby Blue Eyes and California Poppy. These flowers were chosen because passengers often could look out rail car windows and see them growing, along SP routes. The stamped rim design identifies these dishes as Econo-Rim, a design invented by Syracuse China to conserve space on cramped dining car tables while serving the same amount of food as on other types of ware.
