Lamberton Scammell Norfolk & Western Railway 1838 1938 Century Of Service Plate For Sale
Here is a Norfolk & Western Centennial 38 Service Plate - An odd variation that does not have an inner gold pinstripe. I have seen three variations so far and this is the only one I know of like this. The plate is mint to near mintcondition with no chips cracks, measuring 10 3/4 inches with just beautiful coloration on this extremely rare service plate. I see no wear at all. The pattern was made by Scammell,s Lamberton and is fully backstamped - Made Exclusively For Norfolk & Western Railway. Please zoom in and look at all of the fine details.The plate is just about perfect and looks awesome. This variation is also notable because the background is white in my opinionand not really ivory although the back of the plate states ivory. The gold pinstripe is very fine and
intact, only a few places of factory blemish (gold) due to stilts that held up plate during firing. The rims are perfect - just a bit wavy -slightly uneven,not at all a big deal butagain due to the factory firing of this
plate of which many I am sure were never perfect, being hotel ware. The plate is abeautiful and a wonderful Near Mint To Mint variationexample, not to be missed and will look great in your collection. This service plate was used in conjunction with the N&W Cavalier pattern. Used in service aboard and taken away when lunch or dinner was served. Notation: This service plate was produced in 1938 and up until 1940. One of the most colorful service plates in the hobby. Additional information on this plate may beaccessed in both RR china books currently available.
