    Default Mayer China, Beaver Falls, PA

    Hello:

    I'm new to this forum and I'm glad I found it!

    I just pick up a Mayer China plate. It's numbered 461. There is a cactus on the front with the letters "PVCC." Does anyone know what this patter is?

    Thanks.

    Stella

    Default Welcome Stella!

    Good Morning Stella,

    Welcome to the RWCN! I think you'll find us a helpful, friendly group.

    If you have the means to post a photo, it would be most helpful for identification purposes.

    I'm not knowledgable about Mayer China, personally. But I'm sure some of the others will be able to assist you.

    Jeff

    Hi Stella,

    You're undoubtedly looking at a country club plate, but there are just too many "P.... Valley Country Clubs" in existence to obtain a positive ID without a confirmation from the club itself. I immediately thought of the "Prescott Valley Country Club" in Arizona, but only because "Mayer, AZ" is the next town over! I'd normally ask where you found the plate, but often plates taken a souvenirs end up far from their original source. BTW, 461 = April, 1961. You've got some pretty good clues; year, cactus, and depending upon where you found the plate, vicinity. Now comes the fun part! And if you should run into the "GVCC" while looking for the "PVCC" let me know - we've got a lonesome, old cup looking for its former home!

    Best,

    Ered

    Could also be the Paradise Valley Country Club in Paradise Valley, AZ. It was built in 1957.

    Thank you Jeff, Ered and Bernice for your responses! I found this plate in a thrift store in Sacramento . If anyone knows someone who collects these, let me know.

    Have a great weekend!

    Hi, I'm new here too, but looks like a good source of information.

    This is a small pitcher, green design, bottom has Mayer China Beaver Falls, PA MARILYN Patented.
    A number 54 is stamped into the bottom, while 354 is stamped in ink on the bottom. Curious if this is real, because I could not find this pattern on the Mayer list of patterns site.

    I was going to post a picture, but it is on my hard drive and not a URL and that is all it asked for...

    Thanks for any help

    Here's the Marilyn pattern on the RWCN's IDwiki.

    Once you have three posts under your belt you'll have the permissions needed to post photos here: http://www.restaurantwarecollectors....ad.php?t=17383

    Date code would be for 1954: http://www.restaurantwarecollectors....template=mayer

    Have a plain white pitcher made by Mayer China. Only marking on it is "Mayer China EST. 1881". I need to know when it was made..

    Hi Robin -- I moved your post to its own thread named Mayer China Backstamp Dating. Your pitcher dates from the 1930s - early 40s.
