Brown side plate in what is commonly referred to as the “Boston Mails” pattern. There had been some speculation in the past that this was actually the first pattern ever used by Cunard, but that has been disproven. It seems that this china was produced to commemorate the first Cunard steamers. This china came in various colors–blue, brown, black, lavender, etc. The edge of the plate is surrounded by a lovely border decoration with images of each of the first four Cunarders–Britannia, Acadia, Columbia, and Caledonia. This particular plate has an engraving of the Gentlemen’s Cabin in the center. The plate measures nearly 9.25″ across. Just a touch of crazing on the back.
