Syracuse China is well known for its serviceable, attractive china produced for the hotel, restaurant and railroad service sectors. We are offering just such a set for sale. We have a stunning cobalt and gold set of service for 8 produced by Syracuse China, most likely between 1935 and 1943. The'Old Ivory' backstamp on the plate (see photograph), which features a furled ribbon with gracefully folded ends, was used for a very long span of time, from 1927 to 1960. Despite this lengthy time span, we are fairly confident about the vintage of these plates: the sleek banding and severe pattern of the gold acid-etched design are not consistent with fine dinnerware trends from the 1920s to mid-1930s, when gold tracery patterns and center medallions were predominantly in use.Nor is the deep cobalt color or the elegant plate design consistent with china trends after 1950. We may not be able to pinpoint the precise year that these gorgeous plates were manufactured, but we know you will agree that they are truly beautiful! BRIEF HISTORY: Syracuse China has a long and interesting history in fine china production: Founded in 1871 as Onondaga Pottery Company O. Onondaga Pottery initially produced earthenware, but then began producing fine china in the late 1800s. James Pass, the founder's son, spent his entire career with O.
Eventually making this company a national leader in ceramic research. In 1888, Syracuse developed America's first truly vitreous china body, and in 1891 introduced a line of fancy accessory pieces called'Imperial Geddo'. This new line won the medal for translucent china at the World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago in 1893.
Two years later, in 1895, O. Began imprinting "Syracuse China" as the backstamp for this award-winning china.Syracuse China continued to be a leader in ceramics research: During World War II, the company developed and manufactured non-detectable ceramic anti-tank land mines, eventually receiving the distinguished Army-Navy'E' award for excellence in service to the war effort. Regrettably, the manufacturing facility in Syracuse closed in 2009 after 138 years in operation, and production was removed from the United States.
