New Haven Nynh&h Rr Ca 1900 Scarce Shoreline China Butter Pat Butterpat Plate For Sale

New Haven Nynh&h Rr Ca 1900 Scarce Shoreline China Butter Pat Butterpat Plate

Turn-of-the-Century Circa 1900
New York New Haven & Hartford Railroad
"Shoreline" Pattern
China Butter Pat


Please CLICK on THE ABOVE PICTURE for MORE PHOTOS, STRONG ZOOM-INS and CLOSEUPS!!

This very old New York New Haven & Hartford Railroad china butterpat is the Shoreline pattern, which is believed to be one of the earliest patterns used by the railroad for passenger dining car china. ANY piece in ANY condition is hard to find.

This miniature plate carries the pretty semi-script NYNH&H railway logo in dark blue and green surrounded by a single stripe. It is a tiny 3-1/4 inches across. "The Official Guide to Railroad Dining Car China" (McIntyre) states that Shoreline reportedly was used in the first quarter of the 20th century. McIntyre rates it as a 4+ out of a possible 5 for rarity/desirability.

"Restaurant China Vol.2" (Conroy) says the Greenwood Pottery Company never date coded its china, but the impressed bottom mark found on our tiny dish was used between 1886 and 1910.

CONDITION: It has good shiny glaze with bright strong colors and clear, sharp graphics. There are no blurs or glaze runs. There is very light surface wear from use on the plate but you have to tilt it in bright light to see this. It is amazingly free from yellow age spotting. There are NO cracks, chips, flakes or repairs.

IMPORTANT -- SEE OUR PHOTOS: The only thing wrong ~~ is a sprinkling of tiny glaze pimples some of which have old brownish stains in them. This is a manufacturing defect. Shoreline pieces apparently were plagued with pinpricks, tiny grains of sand and other glazing problems. Our butterpat does have some, the worst being a spot at 8-o'clock, but it has so many other GOOD things going for it, the glaze defects are less important.


BOTTOM MARKINGS: Made by the Greenwood Pottery Company, it is impressed GREENWOOD CHINA / TRENTON, N.J. on the bottom, along with a green printed name of Boston, Massachusetts supplier A. Weiskopf (the distributor company through which the NYNH&HRR ordered the china).

Conroy states that Greenwood operated between 1868 and the early 1930s. She also confirms the railroad used A. Weiskopf as a supplier. There also is an impressed squiggle that looks like it should mean something, and may or may not have been deliberately stamped. We aren't familiar with that marking so we can't guess.


A difficult to find piece of very early railway china, this one would be a star in any better collection of passenger dining car items, especially one with a New England flavor
