    These three interesting items were produced by Buffalo China, the soup cup is from 79-86, while the airbrushed plate is from October-December 1972, and the patterned plate was made in the first quarter of 1972. Unfortunately, I can not ID any pattern, but the third might be the Kenmore pattern…..

    The plates are 6.25 inches (15.6Cm) in diameter. Its cheery airbrushed color of the first brightens up the dull Winter days. The green one lifts the Spirits, too. The pieces that are not so rare, and that I have duplicates of, get good use at mealtime at home here.

    Mystery Solved

      Ted, there is a really great little strip mall here with 6 charity / thrift stores right next to each other. I was there yesterday, and was thinking about you. There were some cool pieces with advertisments and pieces like this. I wish I could buy them, but since we moved to a smaller space, I am limited to jewelry (don't take a lot of space)...

      Thanks, DrFluffy. The stores in that strip mall sound great! I love those kind of places….one never knows what can be found there! Many pleasant surprises, for sure…

      Thank you for thinking of me!!!!

      Sorry to hear of your space problem. My friend is in a similar situation…he solved it by buying an old storefront, and is using this as a storage area….what a treasure trove that is :)

      Do you have any ware w/ a buffalo on the bottom ? I like
      This stuff cuz I remember that it was in every diner everywhere ! I try to collect some also, just for the nostalgia.
    17. Ted_Straub Ted_Straub, 4 years ago
      Hi, Lambda55…sorry to have taken so long to have gotten back to you. Yes, i have a few pieces with the buffalo on the bottom. Ironically, some of the earlier pieces also had a buffalo on the bottom, but it was a different design. You can look up "restaurant ware" on the net, and you will find charts and pictures of backstamps and date codes of the plate manufacturers.

      Yeah, I think that I like this stuff for the same reasons that you do. It is fun collecting these things!

      When I saw the three sectioned dinner plates at an auction, they brought great memories of old diners. Luckily, I obtained these.

      Keep in touch, we can discuss these things further…it would be fun!
