Today's item is a 1930s dinner plate, probably used in all three of the Tudor City restaurants of that era -- the dining rooms in No. 25, No. 45 and the Woodstock. Nice and sturdy, it was made by Lamberton Scammell China, a longtime pottery manufacturer known for its premium restaurant and hotel dinnerware. Fred French never stinted on the details.
