The (Top) Mark of David is back!
Hi, and welcome to The (Top) Mark of David! I have been an avid buyer and collector of restaurant ware and other collectible items for many years and am happy to be a member of The Restaurant Ware Collectors Network. Here you'll find a wide selection of collectible china and other items related to the original users of these interesting pieces of history, in most every price range and style, from the ridiculous to the sublime.
I strive to present accurate descriptions of each of these items, but always feel free to contact me with any questions you might have.
Note: In my descriptions, a plate is a plate and a platter is a platter, regardless of size - so I put the dimensions in the title. Make sure to note how big something is - some platters are really small, and some are big! All items are priced individually unless otherwise stated in the description.
If you look over to the left, you'll see the categories in my store. Manufacturers names are shown in ALL CAPS and other categories are not.
Be sure to check out the "Everyday" category. Although restaurant ware is great for everyday use, you may feel funny using a fancy rare topmarked piece for tonight's dinner. This category has a lot of practical items that you can use to add a little flair to your table without fear of damaging something that's super-collectable.
I charge no handling fees, just Retail Priority Mail shipping with insurance and delivery confirmation included in the price. Any overages paid to me over actual shipping will be refunded to you (the shipping calculator isn't always perfect!).
I encourage you to check back often! As time permits, I'm going to be adding some of the "good stuff" previously earmarked for my own collection!
In the meantime, 30% off all "Everyday Use" china, now through October 31, 2012!
Thanks, and have fun!
