Railroad China


ca. 1910s


Dining cars on passenger trains were well established by the 20th century. The railroads sought to provide excellent service and quality food to their passengers. This set of china, from the MK&T, shows the quality of presentation that a diner would see at their table. Railroad china had to be both attractive to customers and durable for the needs of the company.
