Oneida Pattern c.1915-20's- Childs Restaurants

Postby Traintime » Mon Sep 17, 2018 9:42 pm

Barely readable on blade as ONEIDA over 12 DWT over STAINLESS. Pattern could be from one of the other controlled named "Plate" lines but not spotted. Childs in script with no apostrophe before or after "s" seems to be around the WWI/Roaring '20's era, but could run later. Solid one-piece stainless plated. Likely from one of the long gone lunchroom locations. TIA

BTW-Sorry for the severe plate flaking-damage...what was once commonly seen by thousands of diners daily has been reduced by the ravages of time to a mere fraction of the original orders. Gotta run with whatever documentable samples survive. On the other hand, the base metal held up extremely well...can't fault Oneida for bad steel here. It would appear the Poole (from an online dispenser) was one earlier maker/supplier of the Child's concern, though not clear to what degree.

BTW- On 18 Sept., someone posted a find of a older Childs' Restaurant topmarked bowl made by Grindley Hotel Ware (England) at the new version of the Restaurantware Collectors' Network (RWCN), accessible through a link (page bottom) here: http://larryrpaul.com
You'll need to hit "see more posts" twice to get there. [Disclaimer-I do not promote any groups, but provide non-commercial info. for research purposes only.]
A quality ware, but not exactly the top of the food chain for vitrified china products...perhaps also reflected in the firm's choice of silverplate items?
