This charming series was used in the cabins of West Virginia State Parks, and some of it was also sold in park gift shops. Each piece had the seal of the State of West Virginia, but select pieces (most commonly plates) also had larger images of a deer, quail or log cabin.
It was made by both Carr and McNicol China.
This heavy serving bowl is round and stands 8 1/2 inches in diameter and approximately 2 1/4 inches high - a very hard-to-find shape in State Parks china. It was made by Carr. It has obviously been used, as it has moderate-to-heavy use marks in the well, and though shiny, it also has moderate overall use marks on the outside of the bowl. There are a few areas with brown discoloration, and as you can see, the foot is discolored with a rusty brown. It displays beautifully and is truly in excellent condition with no chips or cracks.
