2 Vtg 1940s Carr China W.va Restaurant Ware 9" Flat Rim Soup Salad Bowls:
Offered here are 2 vintage heavy white china, flat rim soup bowls produced by Carr China Company of Grafton, West Virginia. These 9-1/8" diameter bowls are marked on the underside with a light green ink stamp that reads:
CARR CHINA CO.
GRAFTON, W. VA.
And the year of production: 1944and 1948.
These 2 bowls have a glossy surface showing little wear. They have no dark gray marks caused by metal utensils, no nicks, chips, cracks, stains, crazing, or brown age spots, and their rims have none of the brown bruising frequently seen on old white restaurant ware.
However, each old bowl has a couple of production flaws I need to point out. One bowl has a tiny nick on the rim that has been glazed over (hard to see, impossible to photograph). The other bowl has a cluster of 3 dark brown spots near the edge of the deep bowl area (located at the 12:00 position on the standing bowl in the 1st photo, and on the flat bowl in the 2nd photo). This bowl also has 5-6 light tan specks sprinkled overall (mostly unnoticed unless the bowl is held to the light and closely inspected). All of these are located beneath the clear-glaze top coat and were present when the bowl left the factory.
Although exceptionally clean when found, these vintage bowls have been carefully hand washed and towel dried, then safely stored in our pet-free, smoke-free home, and will arrive ready to use.
I have other vintage Carr China restaurant ware currently listed.
If you would like to know the cost of combined shipping,
please send me your zip code. I think you'll be pleased with the savings!
- To ensure their safe arrival, a thick sheet of foam packing material will be placed between the bowls before they swaddled in bubble wrap and packed into a custom made, snug-fitting carton. Then, the boxed bowls will be placed in a sturdy shipping carton lined on the top, bottom, and 4 sides with sheets of 5/8" Styrofoam.
- You will pay only the actual cost of shipping. This pair of heavy, restaurant ware bowls weighs exactly 2.9 pounds. Packing will likely increase shipping weight to the 4-5 pound range. If I have overestimated shipping weight, excess postage will be refunded to your PayPal account the day your package is shipped.
- If you purchase multiple items, each item, or set of identical items, will be packed in its own snug-fitting custom made box, then the boxed items will be shipped in the same Styrofoam lined carton (up to a combined weight of 15 pounds).
