Item Description

A collectors find! This "Centenary" B&O Railroad china is the most popular and widely collected of all railroad china. The full set is over 60 years old. It has service for eight and is the china you would have used in the dining car when travelling on the Baltimore and Ohio railroad in the early part of the 20th century.

Centenary china is known for its elegant and intricate designs using multiple shades of blue on a white base to depict scenic locations and historic locomotives. This china was custom designed for B&O whereas most railroad china patterns were adapted from existing designs. Own a piece of history!
