Onondaga Pottery Company (American (Syracuse, New York), 1871-2009). A "Blue Plum" porcelain footed center bowl c. 1897-1926 with cobalt blue decoration to white ground with shaped and ruffled rim being gilt, the underside with three gilt feet with surrounding decoration of gilt foliates. Marked to underside with underglaze stamp "O.P. Co. Syracuse China" and underglaze hand painted "M.". Approximately 2.75" tall, 10.5" diameter. Note: Gregg Tripoli, President of the Onondaga Historical Association Museum Company, states that this pattern of china was never available to the public, but only to the employees of Syracuse China during the holiday season. The company name transitioned from Onondaga Pottery Company to Syracuse China in 1966.
Overall good condition. Minute fleabites to shaped rim, however, not distracting or noticeable. Little to no wear to gilt. Finish remains crisp. No other damage or repairs noted.
