A real beauty, produced by Buffalo China for The Hotel Lafayette, of Buffalo. The color of this item is that of Buffalo China's Cafe-Au-Lait Line. And luckily, as the picture indicates, I have obtained a matchbook cover from The Lafayette.
From the backstamp, it can be determined that this object was produced in the 1940s. It still looks great today!
The Lafayette has a rich and inspiring history. It fell into disrepair a few years ago, but a developer came up with the cash to restore it to its former grandeur.
