The lovely and gentle pastel flower arrangement lends a classy air to this set of Syracuse China Cream Pitcher and Sugar Bowl. The pink and maroon flowers spring from green leaves that are a beautifully displayed bouquet. The pattern is Coralbel and the china is in the Virginia shape. Each piece is accented by platinum and green trim with lighter marks of platinum on each highly sculptured handle. Some reference material dated this pattern to 1944, but this set looks unused. We will be listing several other pieces of this China so it would be eligible for combined shipping in some instances.
Syracuse China Corporation, was a manufacturer of fine china. The company was founded in 1871 as Onondaga Pottery Company (O.P. Co.) in New York. The company initially produced earthenware as did most pottery companies of that era. After the development of vitreous china initial marketing targeted hotels, restaurants, and railroad dining cars and was very successful. Because of Vitreous China's popularity marketing was expanded to large stores and the general population. Vitreous ware was a durable, pure white, glazed china that could be decorated with a the Syracuse proprietary method. It is resistant to chipping.
