This china is sought after and admired by not only collectors and enthusiasts, but also by the casual users who have enjoyed its beauty and durability since 1871. The manufacturer began it's life as the Onondaga Pottery Company, located just outside of what is today Syracuse, New York. For well over a century they were one one of the leading suppliers of commercial china for the hotel and restaurant industries.
From May 1895 until September of 1903 simple incised numbers were used in sequential order from 1-99 with the #99 being used in July, August & September of 1903. From October 1903 to December 1911 numbers 1-99 were used again in sequence but are enclosed within a circle. These again are incised.
From January 1912 to June 1919 the numbers 1-90 were used again, this time enclosed within a diamond shape. Again these are incised numbers not printed or stamped numbers.
July 1919 to Dec 1919 # 1-9 incised within a diamond.
