Vintage Walker China Desert Tan Red Stripe Celery Tray

Vintage Walker China Desert Tan Red Stripe Celery Tray

$10.00

From the corner diner, to the bustling bistro, to your very own kitchen cupboard at home, restaurant china is as popular as ever. This American-made china has stood the test of time for good reason: it's sturdy, unpretentious, classic and true.

It may be hard to believe, but celery, whether cooked or raw, was more or less the avocado toast of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. It was a standalone item on many menus and restaurants often brought a tray of celery sticks along with other relishes to the table, complimentary along with a basket of bread rolls.

Produced in the 1950s by the long-defunct Walker China Company of Bedford, Ohio, this classic celery tray is glazed in a rosier shade of the warm, neutral color known as Desert Tan and is trimmed with multiple thin bands of cherry red. Use this tray at your next gathering for crudités. Bring it to the table when serving corn on the cob or even a dressed-up hot dog. Use it bedside as a place to lay your glasses before you turn out the lights or on a dressing table to hold brushes and combs - wherever it is found, this handsome tray is sure to bring its nostalgic charms to your home today.


 Limited quantities and subject to prior sale. 10" L x 4 5/8" W. Microwave, Dishwasher and Oven Safe. In excellent, unused condition.
