For those of you familiar with the old RWCN IDwiki™ you will rejoice with us at finding a responsive layout, a powerful search function and the possibility in the future of adding new entries, too. When you click on an entry and see its photos in a slider, click on one and it will enlarge. Click off and the slider will resume. To find the info the site has to offer, click on the box to the right or here, Wayfinding the New IDwiki.
So many thanks go to Jackie Tromble for having the vision 20 years ago to create the RWCN forums and for fostering a welcoming environment for newbies and advanced restaurant ware collectors alike. We follow in her footsteps in awe of the effort and dedication that Jackie especially poured into the site, making it the best possible example of the internet's early promise of sharing information freely.
If you're new to collecting restaurant ware or stumbled upon this site and wonder what on earth makes commercial china so interesting, take a few minutes to download this article Susan wrote for the Journal of Antiques & Collectibles.

After scouting around this site, please join us at our RWCN Facebook page. We're a non-selling group devoted to sharing finds and researching IDs and we work hard to make it a lively, inviting place to hang out with friends. (You will need to answer all three easy questions when you click to join.)
