To Start The Year. A Lost Mayer China Pattern?

Classic boat Plate

Mayer China Restaurant Platter.

Happy 2016, today we start the year with one more thing we need to search for and probably will never find. Some Restaurant China from Mayer China, with a cool Woody Boat on it. From the logo it looks like 1920s-1930s. How cool is that? Wait, we can answer that. IT’S COOL!

Perfect for those boat house Nachos, and Pigs in a blanket. But how cool would it be to have a full set of this stuff.

You know they made Coffee Cups, plates the whole magilla! Dang. Just when you think you have seen it all, you realize we are just seeing the tip of the ice burg. Does anyone know the resturant this platter could have been for.

    Maybe it is from the Thayer family up on Golden Pond. Ethel’s mother ordered a full set for the cabin. They were in the box Norman dropped at the end of the movie.

    How about finding a set of china that came with the 1929/’30 38′ and maybe 48′ Chris Craft Commuters. I had a lead on a set in Conn. once but the lady decided not to sell it…I tried to get a hold of just one plate so we could have it replicated but that didn’t work either. Maybe the archives at Mariners has something on that stuff. Don’t know why I didn’t ask back then. We may have written a Brass Bell story on it..I don’t recall now.

    I have a few serving plates and several shot glasses in this pattern. The glasses are still a little sticky from last night!

      Love seeing the plate and shot glass for this pattern. I found this set of glasses years ago that matches. We also have two lamps that match. Fun items to collect……

    Surprised some of the young “techies” who frequent this site did just Google Mayer China. When you go there you find lots of Mayer china on e-Bay and also reference to the plant where it was once made and the guy who bought the building where the stuff was made. Apparently there was lots of china still in it when he started to remodel it as a welding shop. His name is Jim Paff (724) 246-8584

    Since I have too much time in my hands today, I thought I would share a sample of Michigan custom classic boating china. If anyone would like more information regarding this exclusive pattern, let me know.
