Classic Americana! A blue eagle patriotic large restaurant ware oval plate / platter; produced in America by Syracuse China. The oval platter "Liberty pattern" measures about 11" long by 9 1/2" wide, a lovely bigger size for everyday use. The platter is in very excellent order with no chips, cracks or crazing, and just the very slightest of utensil scratches, the condition is virtually unused with shiny glaze and vibrant color. From my research on the back-stamps I believe these are early, and were made in 1920 at their Court Street Plant. I have up to ten of the platters in this size available, as well as four in a smaller (perhaps lunch or child size, see my other listings), and would be happy to combine shipping.
Syracuse China Corporation, located in Syracuse, New York, was a manufacturer of fine table wares. The company was founded in 1841 as Farrar Pottery and was bought out in 1868 when the name was changed to Empire Crockery Manufacturing Company. By 1871, it was changed again to Onondaga Pottery Company (O.P.Co.) and eventually to Syracuse China Corporation in June 1866, however the wares produced by the company wasn't back stamped with the Syracuse China logo until 1895. The company initially produced earthenware. In the late 19th century, O.P.Co., began producing fine china, for which it found a strong market particularly in hotels, restaurants, and railroad dining cars. The manufacturing facility in Syracuse closed in 2009.
