Manufacturer: Jackson China
User: Presto Lunch and Restaurant
Date of plate: 1917-1930s
Notes: Based on an exact match of the Presto logo on this plate and vintage matchbook, it is believed the Presto Lunch and Restaurant was located at 146-8 Market St., in Newark, N.J. – "For Ladies and Gentlemen."
The border design and restaurant name are in dark brown on a white plate. The border is made up of an elongated checkerboard pattern and is similar to Syracuse China's Blue Chain and Black Chain patterns. The name Presto is in a script font, with an underline coming off the "o."
