Hudson Lunch was a popular name in the 1920s and 1930s, and references were found in New York; Paterson, N.J.; Lima, Ohio; and a New Hudson Lunch in Fort Wayne, Ind., to name a few. Other similar names were The Hudson Quick Service Lunch and Hudson Grill. That said, I don’t know where this great plate was used, but it’s a classic, with its founder’s image in the center and its dark green acanthus leaf design.
Condition is excellent. It is 8 7/8” across and though it has heavy overall wear, the design is still bright and crisp. It would have been made between 1912 and the 1920s.
