Bank of America Platter – 1920-1925 – Shenango China


The Shenango China backstamp on this platter dates from the 1920s to the early 1950s, but when combined with the L. Barth and Co., New York, backstamp would limit its production to between 1920 and 1925. So this is a very early pattern made exclusively for the Bank of America, now the second largest bank holding company in the United States.

I have two of these platters, sold individually. They are 12 ½” by 8 ½” and both are in excellent condition. Their only real flaw is overall medium utensil marks. The glaze is still bright and shiny.

These are the only two Bank of America pieces I’ve ever seen and would most likely have been used in the company’s corporate dining room.
