Unknown Pattern-Oneida Hotel Plate for ROBERTS

Postby Traintime » Fri Nov 30, 2018 2:50 am

Unidentified pattern most similar to styles of 1930-40 era (possibly as late as 50's). May have been made for Southern California based Roberts Brothers Drive-In Diners (circular restaurants)...Roberts literature notes their first location, converted from a sandwich stand, introduced silverware to the delight of souvenir hunters. Only one of the two pieces has a topmark stamp, but both are of the same pattern. (Identity of user is not 100% positive.) TIA

Pattern is 'Redwood', introduced in 1949.

Excellent! Apparently also surfacing with Dohrmann Company supplier mark DOHRCO and the Redwood name, either alone or with Oneida Hotel mark. Of course I may have to widen the search for the user now. Thanks Cheryl.

Appears to be same OHP pattern carrying topmark for W. T. Grant Company (script style) which was a large five-and-dime type chain operating until 1976. Only one ice tea or soda spoon spotted so far, but if this was their standard pattern it could have amounted to a very sizeable order.
