Manufacturer: Scammell China
User: Rhodes' Mountain Inn
Date of platter: 1929 – 1930
Notes: Located on the Lackawanna Trail (Route 611) in Scotrun, Penn., 10 miles north of Stroudsburg and 4 miles south of Mt. Pocono, this 50-room inn probably opened in the mid-to-late 1920s. It was first listed in the 1935 Hotel Red Book, and in 1951 it became Rhodes' Hotel (open May 1 to Nov 1). The hotel was not listed in the 1959 edition.
Next door to the inn was Rhodes' Coffee Shop (to the right in the postcard above). It was located in what had been the inn's original garage. It is likely that this china was either used at the coffee shop exclusively, or in addition to its use at the inn.
White body with acorns and oak leaves in browns and dull greens. The image of the white inn with a rust roof, surrounded by trees, is at the top of the platter.
