Baltimore & Ohio Railroad “Centenary” pattern Large Pitcher – Shenango
In 1927, the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad introduced the “Centenary” pattern of china for its dining cars. The pattern commemorated the B&O’s 100-year anniversary and proved to be a huge hit with travelers. It was produced over a period of 50+ years by different manufacturers — Buffalo, Scammell’s Lamberton, Shenango, Interpace, Syracuse, and Sterling — resulting in numerous variations. For example, there are at least four different variations in divided compartment plates and eleven variations in tea pots. This pattern was used from 1927 until the end of passenger service in 1971. It has been produced several times after 1971 – for sale through the B&O’s Museum in Baltimore and even an order in 1993 used on CSX business cars.
This large pitcher was produced by Shenango China. It is about 5 inches in diameter and stands about 4 inches tall. It is in excellent condition, and does not have any other chips, cracks or hairlines.
