Nice find on the plate 8FT. Sterling China is still in business and pumping out china for restaurants. They started in 1917 and have made tons of logo china for airlines, railroads and restaurants and diners. Not sure of when or who your plate was made for but I think there is a collectors guide out and available at most bookstores. Good find.

Stylistically, this looks like 80s or 90s fantasy art, with an Art Nouveaux influence, not really like anything mid-century.

Well I'll be darned! To my eye it still has this Victorian doll collectors look and color palette.

I've seen this pattern frequently and there are a few similar or copied designs by other manufacturers too. Some have hotel & restaurant markings on the center or bottom and the ones I've run into were dated from the 60's-70's.
Here's some on ebay now:

http://cgi.ebay.com/Jackson-China-mugs-saucers-SHIPS-Nautical-theme-PLUS_W0QQitemZ120464718710QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item1c0c41bb76

I collect an older pattern that has a simpler design in the same vein by Syracuse called "The Viking" patented from 1902. It also had its duplicators dating at least into the 60's. The one pictured below from the 7 Seas restaurant is the Syracuse as is the green oval plate.

Caffeinated-Not to take away from your plate, but you are kinda derailing Tiki Kate's thread .
I would have possible started another plate thread.She as well as others are still wanting
info on the original plate that was posted.

Actually if you read through, my post is in response to the plate 8FT posted several spots up. I was showing similar plates like that are in the e-bay links I posted which gives some varied locations where they were used. The other pattern I have is relevant to that design as an example of the varied usage of these basic patterns and the locations where mine were used were later upgraded with the more colorful pattern in some cases. I think the "tiki-ness" of all is a bit far off, though some may tie in to the nautical theme coinciding with tiki themes at times.

If the thread was derailed I got on after it left the track.

So...a seperate thread for every plate question? I apologize to everyone who feels I derailed this and caused others to follow suit. I can delete my posts but that won't get rid of the replies. Kate, a personal I'm sorry to you. Shall I start erasing??? 8ft

Kate, do you have a photo of the markings on the back of your plate? And on a side note I think a thread just for restaurant server ware and dinner ware china is a great idea. With the knowledge folks on TC have it would be great to see it all come out on one big thread.

Oh please. The title of the thread is "Where Is This Plate From?" It's not "Where Is Kate's Plate From?" If I had wanted to narrow the scope, I would have changed the title. No need to apologize.

I like Uncle Trav's idea of a restaurant ware thread though. There are a ton of really cool tiki and tiki-adjacent designs out there.

Trav - I'll get a picture of the back of the plate posted soon.
