The best meal is a disappointment if the table looks unattractive. Ida Bailey Allen

{HISTORY}

Manufactured by the one of the hotel industry's leading dishware makers, this Sterling China Semi-Vitrified platter was made in the 1950's in East Liverpool, Ohio. The pottery company had been in business since 1917, and had steadily built up a reputation for craftsmanship and design that appealed particularly  to restaurants and hotels all around country. By the time the 1950's rolled around, Sterling was at the top of it's game, expanding the pottery into newly acquired plants, including one in Puerto Rico. Especially known for their glazing techniques and lasting design durability, the pottery continued to grow and thrive throughout the 20th century. But, unfortunately, by the early 2000's, Sterling China Company closed, just shy of their 100th birthday, as they were unable to compete with foreign markets.

This all white platter with its heavy weight (just under 3 lbs), its classic shape and  its scalloped edge makes an ideal candidate for all sorts of serving and display situations. You really can't go wrong with all white servingware as it makes practically every type of food look wonderful, and it's an easy breezy decorating companion, whether you choose to incorporate it into your tableware collection or display it on a wall or shelf. This Sterling platter also comes with a little extra gift as well... the provenance of history... a nod to the booming hospitality and pottery industries of the 20th century.
