The famous grey star pattern as used on the super liner United States. Both the cup and the saucer are made by Mayer, the original supplier of china to the United States. Mayer china is very cool because it is almost always dated. The first number is the quarter of the year in which it was made, and the second two numbers are the year. Thus 257 = Second Quarter, 1957. All the cups are dated first quarter 1966 with the saucers dated 1957. You all know I love a cup and saucer, partly because they display so well. In this case, though, ss United States china is even more handy as it was designed to be dish washed in scalding hot salt water. Your average home dishwasher cannot do any harm to it. You can use this china daily for decades, and it will still be lovely. No chips, cracks, or crazing. Comes from the Dr. Sarah Forbes Collection. A pair available.
