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 by a variety of American china companies (Wellsville, Sterling and Buffalo), these classic celery trays are glazed in the warm, neutral shade known as Desert Tan that was so popular mid-century. Use them at your next gathering for crudités. Bring them to the table when serving corn on the cob or even a dressed-up hot dog. Use them 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 they are found, these handsome trays are sure to bring their nostalgic charms to your home today.

Limited quantities and subject to prior sale. 9 7/8"L x 4 1/2"W. Microwave, Dishwasher and Oven Safe. Circa 1950. Please note the manufacturers will vary as will slightly the shade of tan. In excellent, unused condition.
