Blue Willow Dessert Plates, Buffalo China, Restaurant Ware, Set of 3, Blue and White, Restaurant Grade China
A beautiful set of three dessert plates (pie plates) by Buffalo China. It is in the Blue Willow pattern that consists of a tea house, three figures on a bridge, a person in a boat, two birds, and a zig-zag fence. This is transferware in blue and white. Blue and White china is highly collectible as is the Blue Willow pattern. These are restaurant grade china from the 1940s and they are very heavy. These would be perfect for your table, sideboard, or buffet. Great for a start of a collection.
Buffalo China is also called “restaurant ware”, because it was used primarily in diners, restaurants, etc. and “America's ironstone”, because it shares many similarities with English ironstone. It is thick, heavy for its size, and has a luster to the glaze that is identifiable to a trained eye. They are very durable and great for everyday use.
The Buffalo Pottery Company was established in Buffalo, New York, in 1901. It was an offshoot of the Larkin Soap Company, which was founded in 1875. John Larkin and Elbert Hubbard conceived Buffalo Pottery to make dishes that could be purchased with certificates from Larkin Soap. Buffalo Pottery produced many different kinds of pottery for commercial use in hotels and railroad dining cars, as well as art pottery that is popular with antique collectors.
