    These two grey outside /white inside melamine dishes are from the B.O.A.C -(BRITISH OVERSEAS AIRWAYS CORPORATION) possibly made late 60s early 70s , & was used for onboard meals !! (Thanks to aghcollect for that info)

      Aghcollect thanks for that link on B.O.A.C ,
      So they were used actually on the plane for meals ..
      these ones are 1.5" high so maybe for a pie/lasagna etc
      many many tnanks.. sd

      Yes, for meals - the link said circa 1970-1974 and the material is melamine. The ones shown were probably entree and yours probably as you say probably desert or maybe even salad. Looks like one was used as an ashtray but when I traveled I would use my dishes as ashtrays too since those little armrest ashtrays only held 2 or 3 butts. :)

      Thanks for your comments aghcollect!
      The one that looks like its been used as an ashtray hasn't, it had an old key ring in it when i found it which was wet & rusty which is what the stains are! Sd
