Rare Strand Lunch Plate by Shenango

 Sold Out 


The Strand Lunch was located at 103 No. Pearl Street in Albany, New York. The first mention of it was found in 1921. The Shenango backstamp dates this to the 1920s to 1930s, so it is possible that it is from the first – or only – order of china for this restaurant.

The 9" plate is the only example of this pattern that we've seen. It does have moderate-to-severe overall utensil marks with slight areas of discoloration on the rim with one rust-colored spot between 2 and 3 o'clock. However, the lines are crisp and clear, as is the decal. What might look like a red smudge near the decal is actually the fire in the torch held by the lion!
