This is a lovely compote from the railroad restaurant ware made by Buffalo China in the Susquehanna pattern for the Erie Railroad. This pattern features a lovely blue and orange floral design and ERIE on the outside border on a white background. The piece is 2 7/8 inches high and 7 7/8 inches across. The piece is marked on the bottom: Made Especially for Erie Railroad, Design Patented, Buffalo China. This pattern was also produced for Albert Pick & Company Vitrified China. This pattern is from circa 1929. Very good condition with no chips, cracks, or repairs, has some usage marks. There are some under glaze blue marks and “ERIE” is slightly blurred. The piece is very heavy and weighs 2 pounds alone. Will ship quickly USPS. Love to combine shipping. Thanks.

 

History: The Erie Railroad was a railroad that operated in the northeastern United States, originally connecting New York City with Lake Erie. Its mainline route proved influential in the development and economic growth of the Southern Tier, including cities such as Binghamton and Elmira, New York. 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 his brother-in-law Elbert Hubbard conceived Buffalo Pottery to make dishes that could be purchased with certificates from Larkin Soap. In essence, the company was a gimmick to sell more 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.

 

My shipping price includes my actual postage cost as well as packing/handling cost (bubble wrap, boxes, tape, envelopes, etc.) with transportation to post office and my time. It entails more than the postage stamp amount when it arrives to you. Also note that I recycle materials as much as possible – saving the environment. All that being said I do try hard to be reasonable. Please leave feedback when the item is received and I will do the same for you.
